Magnificent Large Mahogany Tea Caddy
This impressive early nineteenth century tea caddy is fashioned in solid mahogany, the exposed surfaces of which display the rarest examples of Santo Domingo crotch-cut "plum-pudding" wood. There are two tea compartments inside, with an elegantly cut footed glass bowl between. The highly detailed carrying handle and key are original and there are stepped brass feet, hinges and and escutcheon. English, circa 1820, the caddy measures about 14 inches wide by seven inches tall and deep.
