A George III harewood tea caddy, the facing canted sides inlaid with columns, the front and lid with bats' wing paterae, these respective panels cross-banded with kingwood. Two further sides inlaid with yew wood ovals, inside a mahogany lid and purchase receipt from Charles Stewart, Wigmore Street, London, 1971. Harewood is initially silvery-gray in colour and produced by the process of boiling English sycamore veneer in a solution of ferrous (iron) sulfate. From the 17th century, the roots of sycamore trees were treated with ferrous sulphate for several years to induce the grey colouring "naturally".
