Miniature Georgian Tea Caddy With Conch Shell Inlays....Rare

A rare miniature Georgian mahogany twin compartment tea caddy c.1810. The edge of the lid and front of the caddy are crossbanded in Kingwood. Both the lid and front of the caddy have a superb conch shell inlay. The lift-off inner mahogany lids each have a bone knob. The underside of the lid has been relined in a hand-marbled paper. It only measures 12.25cm wide x 7.25cm deep x 8.75cm high. A rare opportunity to acquire such a small Georgian tea caddy.
