Wonderful mahogany miniature bow fronted chest of drawers tea caddy with four graduated drawers defined by boxwood stringing and turned bone handles. Standing on elegant rosewood shaped bracket feet on a rosewood & boxwood edged plinth. The green escutcheon is made of bone which is inset into mahogany cross-banded frieze towards the top of the chest, with ebony criss-cross stringing which continues around its sides.

The top of the chest is edged in ebony, and cross-banded in satinwood with ebony and boxwood stringing. It also features a symmetrical boxwood semi-circle inlay with an inlaid diamond of rosewood and satinwood in the centre. The interior's inlays echo those of the exterior, showing how fresh and vibrant the colours would have been the day the caddy was created.

This wonderful rare chest of drawers tea caddy has its original untouched polish, has fantastic patination and comes with a fully working lock and tasselled key.
