Product Description

From the late Georgian period, sometime around 1860 in England, here is a wonderful mahogany tea caddy. This is a simple, but beautiful box that would have originally been used to lock away valuable tea to keep servants from stealing it. Today antique tea caddies are used primarily for decoration in almost any setting.

Antique Tea Caddy

This particular box is made of mahogany. It has a functioning lock and retains its key! The inside has a single wooden divider. It also comes with eight glass bottles with stoppers. These bottles were added to the caddy later in its life. They are probably about 10 years old. The box will not lock with the bottles inside, they are a touch too tall, but it locks just fine with them out. They do give the caddy a really neat look though.
There are a few cosmetic repairs to mention. The bottom left corner of the front has been repaired. The top has an age split across it, but the top is still very strong and sturdy, the split has not affected its integrity. There are some minor stains here and there. Overall though these things serve to add to the beauty and character of the tea caddy. It is a great looking box that will adorn any home or office for years to come.
