Description
Victorian figured walnut dome top twin section tea caddy in very good condition. I will not use the term ‘original’ when referring to the various features of the box as aside from the replacement working key every aspect of this caddy is original. No missing veneer. Attractive grain. Unspoilt patina not only to the veneer but also to the applied pierced and etched brass decoration. All dome top fixings are present. The brass could of course be easily cleaned to gold-like a lustre but the mellow colouring certainly contributes to the antique charm of the item. The lid closes perfectly square. Hinges and locare k in very good condition as is the lining to the lid interior. It is always good to come across any tea caddy of any period with the original lids still present with the knob s. Veneered with figured walnut to complement the caddy exterior and thicker than most caddy lids and raised beyond the level of the base section as was frequently the case with caddies of the style and peI thinkI think it fair to state that the condition of the lining to the lid undersides and both tea storage sections is exceptional and would certainly suggest that the caddy has had VERY little use over the course of the past 120+ years. Given the condition and degree of original ,features this caddy would make an excellent addition to any collection and a sound investment piece. Must recommend. Unpacked weight 1Kg
