Vizagapatam Stag Horn Serpentine Tea Caddy.

The interior of this impressive Vizagapatam Tea Caddy is constructed of sandal wood and veneered with buffalo horn, contains two Ivory lids both engraved & Lac filled with floral borders very similar to pen work decoration.

This eye catching stag horn tea caddy contains 100% of its original lead lining and comes complete with fully working lock & tasselled key.

The fashion for ivory veneering began in Vizagapatam in the middle of the eighteenth century superseding inlay work as the predominant vogue. Tastes developed and the cabinet-making industry met a demand for decorative items in the neoclassical vogue with the stark contrast of black and white, as seen here. This fashion also influenced the style of engraving that decorated these pieces, which became increasingly restrained, "shedding ... exotic decorative elements in ... favour of motifs that were in fashion in Europe.
