A fine quality Victorian period bur walnut tea caddy. The caddy has a makers address brass inset label for Bridge Street, Piccadilly, London. The actual makers name is not given and I have been unable to identify it although the quality of the box speaks for itself. The caddy is of a simple form but every part is beautifully made. The veneer is bur walnut of a great colour and figuring, the interior is also veneered in the same but also has coromandel wood to the edges. The interior has one removable box canister and the most superb original cut glass mixing bowl both are in excellent condition even down to the original lining in the canister. The mixing bowls in tea caddies are nearly always missing or damaged and this is the original and perfect . The tea caddy retains a working lock and key and is in overall excellent condition, with only a small repair on the back. A great example of the finest early Victorian craftsmanship in a simple and elegant design. C.1840.
