This is a lovely tea caddy made in the 19th century Britain. It is Papier Mache with gilded and Mother of Pearl decoration. There is a lock but no key. There are two compartments with lids. These compartments still have their foil lining. The lids have really nice little knob handles. The tea caddy measures 8 1/2" x 5" x 4". It is in very nice condition. The screws on the hinges have been replaced but the hinges are original. The front right bottom corner and the back left bottom corner have a small bit of damage.
