Red tortoiseshell tea caddy with a solid silver bobbin moulding to the top and bottom edge.
Unusually, each panel is separated by a tortoiseshell moulding with a silver looped handle to the top and a silver key profile. Lifting the tortoiseshell lined lid reveals tulipwood facings, a silver hinge and lock, and a bone handled single floating lid. With much of its lining still intact.

With a fully working lock and tasselled key. The key must be turned clockwise to unlock.
