Handsome Sheraton period fruitwood tea caddy, c.1785. It features exotic crossbandings, olivewood stringing and an olivewood inlay to the top of the lid, and satinwood interior lids. It sits on delicate brass feet, and measures 8.2" in length by 5.4" in depth by 5.1" in height. Amazingly, it comes with a working lock and key, although the locking action is somewhat loose.

The caddy is in wonderful condition for its age. It is original throughout with the exception of the hinges, which appear to be replacements. There is a hairline crack to the olivewood insert on the lid, and minor damage/loss to the banding on the lid. But it has the most glorious patina -- a very beautiful early piece.

Thanks for visiting.
