An exceptional 19th C. Rosewood Regency Tea Chest or Caddy in sarcophagus form with velvet-lined locking lid. The top and sides are embellished with an arabesque pattern of cut-out gilded brass.
Lion head handles with ring pulls decorate each side and knobby brass feet support the box. The box is in excellent condition with minor professional restoration to a small portion of the rosewood veneer. The interior fittings are missing and the brass feet have been replaced, but the box is stunning as a decorative item and would be wonderful for shelf display.
