An elegant tea caddy decorated outside, inside the main lid and on the two internal lids with black gesso, in the form of swags and with floral themes, in the style of 'Black Forest' carving. It retains its original key but it is currently not working. This box would look equally good in an antique, vintage or minimalist decor. Length 5 ins (12.75cm), width 9.75 ins (24cm), height 5.25 ins (13cm). Weight 1286 grams. This box is in very good condition, with some missing sections as can be seen in the images. This item can be seen in the book, "Antique Boxes - Inside and Out", on page 150.
