Circa 1760, rare and early George III mahogany tea caddy of diminutive proportions. With a classical shape, and a pergoda lid, there is an oval cast brass swan neck handle which has been gilded. There is an ogee side to the flat section, with simple mouldings and a flat fore-edge. The top is hinged, opening to reveal 2 small metal canisters with lids and a mixing container in the centre with a dome shaped lid. The caddy lid is lined in gold felt and to the front is a stylish cast brass escutcheon. Beneath the front there is an ogee moulding and the whole tea caddy stands on squat bracket feet. The caddy retains its original lock.
