2125/19: A fine and rare small TEA CADDY of cube shape with canted corners, decorated to the lid and all four sides with charming rural views, set within painted panels. The lid opens to reveal the original inner lid and ‘button’ handle, with much of the original lead lining intact. Complete with working lock and two working keys. *This is a very rare tea caddy, almost certainly Continental and perhaps "Spa-ware" from the Belgian town of Spa in the province of Liege, where highly regarded souvenirs were made as early as the 17th century from local wood, which was hand-decorated and now widely collected.

c.1820
