This is a really wonderful bun footed rosewood sarcophagus tea caddy. It dates to around 1830. It has a key which is very unusual. The keys for these old tea caddies are almost always missing.
The condition overall is very good. There is wear on the inside liner and tea compartments. The veneer on the container tops has cracked due to shrinkage caused by age.
The caddy measures approximately 6” by 5” by 5 ¼” high.
