TC566: Monumental three canister tea chest in figured rosewood on a mahogany carcass with mother of pearl inlay standing on turned rosewood feet having turned rosewood drop ring handles.
The shape of this chest combines elements and influences characteristic of the early nineteenth century. It is structured in an ancient Egyptian architectural form combining tapered and pyramid lines which make this caddy a strong statement of the robust and elegant style of the Regency. The composition of the top is strong. The inlaid mother of pearl inlay panels are set off by a further stringing of white metal (pewter). circa 1830.
