089 Sold Regency Rosewood Tea Caddy - Circa 1820

 

This Rosewood English Tea Caddy dates to Circa 1820. The top opens to reveal twin lidded compartments for tea storage. The Caddy has Satinwood stringing and very interesting brass handles with the Crowned Twin Headed Eagles from The Russian Empire but they were added at some time after manufacture. The Caddy was purchased from eastern Europe but I don't have a connection to Russia. It is superby designed and constructed.
