A late Georgian caddy with conch shell inlay on the lid and foliage inlay at the front. The richly figured mahogany is bounded by very fine diamond and rope inlays. This is a two compartment tea caddy with matching mahogany lids inside, ivory knobs and a shield escutcheon. The key is present but the lock does not work. Neatly lead lined inside. Original black fabric base. Looks crisp and smart and measures 6 7/8″ x 4 3/8″ x 5″ high. A super example of Georgian cabinet making.
