Object Description

A Charming Late Regency Period Rosewood Tea Caddy, In
The Form Of A Miniature Pedestal Sideboard, Having Hinged
Lid Over Concealed Canisters And Central Mixing Bowl Hole
Raised On Original Plinth Base (lacking key)

(This rare, elegant and very collectable tea caddy takes
the form of a miniature pedestal sideboard with a hinged
lid over concealed tea canisters. Tea was of course a
most precious commodity in the 18th and 19th centuries
and the wealthy folk of the time were always looking for novel
and ingenious way to lock their expensive tea leaves away
from any potential wandering hands. Well what better way
than to place it in an article that at first glance appears not
to even be something which is used for the storage of tea.
As you would expect the item is excellent quality throughout
and constructed beautifully.)

Circa 1835
