Harewood Oval shaped Tea Caddy inlaid with a Conch Shell to the top and inlaid rosette tied husk swags to the front with a delicate key profile made of bone. The colour and patiantion of this piece is wonderful.

This eighteenth century oval tea caddy retains most of its original tin foil lining, has a single floating lid with turned bone handle, has a fully working lock and tasselled key.

Sycamore, also known as Harewood is a member of the Maple family, found in Europe. It is light yellow in colour and is often a very clean wood, with a straight, fine grain.

The wood is often pippy. However, these pips are usually a very similar colour to the rest of the wood making them hardly visible.
