This small antique spice box or tea caddy was crafted with a raised lid with swing bail and a simple body with applied corners for both decorative and reinforcing purposes. It opens to reveal a second, small, covered compartment inside the main interior. With original patina, it is a piece that would polish nicely for a more modern look.
