1491/17: A pretty early 19th century inlaid TEA CADDY of cube shape. At first glance perhaps nothing special, but on closer examination, it can been seen to be inlaid on all four sides and the lid with beautiful birds (to either side); butterflies (to front and back) and with a conch shell to the lid. The quality of these marquetry panels is superb ~ all are set within figured mahogany with tulipwood crossbanding. A charming tea caddy.

c.1820
