Description.

The tea chest is in good order throughout, and even contains its original cut glass tea caddy bowl, worth £150- £200 alone. Its veneered in gorgeous flame mahogany with tulipwood and boxwood crossbandings to the top & front. The top has a lovely large bats-wing fan with an engraved Sheffield plated handle. This handle has left marks to the top all consistent with its age and use, I love it. The front has an oval shaped bone escutcheon. Opening the tea chest reveals two tea caddies with hinged tops that match the exterior, with each one superbly dovetailed. Removing these from their voids and placing them back, they slowly drop with cushions of air coming up their sides due to their superb fit made my master cabinet makers of their time. The center contains a elegant cut glass caddy bowl which is contemporary to the tea chest, the velvet that surrounds the bowl has been replaced as is the red silk lined lid, but both look good.

This tea caddy is being offered for sale by auction, all we have had to do is cut a key and wax finish it.             

If I'm going to be super critical the tea chest has a very slight warp / twist to the lid. That is its only flaw.
