Antique wooden tea caddy of richly grained mahogany wood and walnut string inlay band along the seams. It is in the Sarcophagus shape with a brass hinged lid. The tea caddy interior is divided into two compartments with covers and brass knobs. The lock has a diamond shaped escutcheon on the front side and four brass ball feet. It measures 6 inches high by 8.75 inches long and 5.25 inches deep. The condition is very good for its antique 19th century age. A piece of the lock is missing and there is no key. The interior shows normal signs of age and use and there is wood age separation on one side of the lid (please see photo). The wood has a rich grain and warm finish. This lovely box is ready to be enjoyed and displayed. It is beautiful set on a tea table.
