Description
Highly sought after Georgian tea caddy in very good condition. Veneered with flame mahogany….all original and complete. Brass top handle and ornate brass surround to the key hole. Stands on nicely formed feet…all in excellent condition. The lid closes perfectly square. The lipping to the lid interior that extends beyond the exterior surface of the caddy is in remarkable condition….more often than not severely damaged. The lock I believe is original and complete with a replacement working key. The hinges are I believe neat replacements. The base section features the usual two solid mahogany dividers. The lining to the lid interior has been replaced by a previous owner. The style of the caddy is certainly regarded as a true classic and was popular from the late 1700’s and throughout most of the early 1800’s and often contained containers made of a range of materials. What makes this caddy a cut above many is that it features a secret drawer accessed by raising the right side. The side slides up beautifully , is a testament to the skills of the maker and in a condition that I have never seen previously….though I have not come across many given the rarity factor!! The removable tray is of oak construction with a later brass turned knob. To the underside of the tray someone has written ‘When this you see pray think of me’. It is signed but I cannot decipher the letters. Yes the caddy has had some restoration but search the web to appreciate the rarity factor and to fully appreciate why the style is considered as a true ‘classic’. No caddy collection is complete without an example of the style, the secret drawer is certainly an additional bonus. Highly Recommended.
