Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The beautiful Tea Chest has a silver ring pull to the lid & silver key profile to the front. Bands of engraved ivory with sprouting vine flowers surround the top and base. The front has a wonderful ivory shell decoration which really makes this piece stand out. Opening this fabulous piece reveals yet more engraved bands of ivory, a paterae in the lid, and two fabulous removable tea caddies, each inlaid with a wooden conch shell.
These exotic pieces were crafted with ivory veneer, retailed in Madras and Calcutta by the English and Dutch East India Companies, but primarily manufactured in Vizagapatam on the northern Coromandel Coast.
This tea chest comes with a fully working lock and tasselled key.
United Kingdom £25
