This is a beautiful 19th century footed & paneled sarcophagus-form oak wood triple tea caddy. This large tea caddy with 3 lidded wells shows a beautiful patina to the wood and is accented with a brass keyhole cover. It measures approximately 13-3/8" long x 8-1/2" wide (front to back) x 8-1/4" high to the top of the subtly domed lid. The brass hinges, keyhole cover and lock are all original. There is no key. The hasp shows losses. We do not know if the lock is functioning. The interior lids, each with tiny bone knobs, are original. The interior of the 3 wells shows a later silvered paint, as shown. The sarcophagus form of the caddy tapers down to the original flared footed base. This large form, scarce with 3 wells, would be an outstanding addition to any antique tea caddy collection, antique box collection, or period decorative accessory.
