A VERY significant double Tea Caddy constructed of tortoiseshell with RARE pressed tortoiseshell front. This type of press work is very difficult to accomplish and very time consuming, the slightest error and the whole thing cracks and has to be scrapped. It also features a sterling cartouche with the monogram of "S". Exceptional condition throughout. Typical of the regency period caddies this one sports two compartments with tortoiseshell lids with ivory knobs. The last photo shows it in the company of a part of a significant collection of tea caddies that just arrived. More photos available.
