Antique English Wooden Tea Caddy with Inlaid Marquetry *Has Working Key
This lovely antique hinged-lid tea caddy is a two-compartment wooden box with lift-off lids to each compartment and a working key. Probably dates to late 1800s or very early 1900s. Measurements: 8-3/4"L x 4"W x 3-7/8"H Condition: The box is wonderfully intact with still-secure construction - especially at the corners. No cracks or broken places in the box itself; some light scratches in the surface. The interior lids still rest securely on little triangular pieces of wood in each corner. The hinges work smoothly. The original key is still present and the box does lock and unlock. The inlaid marquetry is amazingly intact except for one little strip missing at the very back edge of the lid -- not readily noticeable.
