This mid-19th century Tunbridge tea caddy features a topographical scene of a castle and bands of tessellated mosaic. It also features a band of flowers in typical form based on the Berlin tapestry popular at the time. Inside is one removable compartment for tea (hinged lid and foil-lined). The other compartment is velvet-lined and contains a cut glass bowl for sugar which appears to be original. The box sits on four bun feet and is a very nice example of a quality Tunbridge tea caddy. Width 9.75 ins x depth 5 ins x height 6 ins. In very good condition with a small area of missing veneer and tesserae (see image) plus some slight cracking. The lining of the bottom of the box has a section missing. This item can be seen in the book, "Antique Boxes - Inside and Out", on page 137.
