Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
It’s veneered in beautiful red-stained figured tortoiseshell and has exquisite pressed engraved applied silver on every edge, which frames the striking vibrant shell. The top has an oval silver cartouche with ribboned swags above and is engraved with a wild boar. The boar symbolises bravery & hospitality, its crown being an emblem of victory and sovereignty. Opening the caddy reveals a faded red ruched silk velvet and, emulating the shagreen case, has a single canted tortoiseshell lid with silver stringing and ball handle. We feel privileged to be momentary guardians of this piece that has been cherished for over thirty years as part of a gentleman’s collection.
This exquisite tea caddy comes with a fully working lock and tasselled key.
