George III 18th Century Satinwood Marquetry Inlaid Tea

Lot 0014 Details

Description
From Georgian and through Victorian times, wood boxes and caddies appeared everywhere in the traditional English country or town house. They were made to take care of every type of manufactured or hand-made small household articles. Some of the more popular forms included work boxes, tea caddies and stationary boxes. Good houses would not be complete without these pieces that were both functional and decorative.; Sometimes these boxes were elevated to works of art in themselves. This Georgian 18th century tea caddy is obviously one in this category.; It is the type of caddy that you want to touch and run your hands over to not only feel the marvelous wood, but also its superb workmanship. It also features inlaid exotic woods. Satinwood was reserved for only the most expensive tea caddies of the time. Some of the best furniture makers used this wood for tables that would end up in the estates of royalty and the upper classes. The beautiful wood of this piece has attained a rich color and a glowing patina.; In this fabulous caddy, the maker utilized a herringbone border with very small pieces of inlay that look like ropes surrounding the larger border. On the top are clusters of leaves around a central heart motif that has an original pull to help lift the lid. The exquisite heart is bordered by the same rope-twist effect as the outside herringbone border. Also on the lid are inlays of exotic wood made to resemble a twisted ribbon. This ribbon-like effect surrounds central heart and is repeated on the front as a swag. Both sides of the caddy have the herringbone border with the twisted-rope-effect border as well. Remarkably, even the back of the tea caddy has a continuation of the wonderful herringbone border design.; Upon opening the rather heavy lid, inside of it will be found the original mirrored glass. There are two compartments for tea and each lid has its own herringbone border. The finials are original to the caddy. There also is an original lock and key to keep the precious contents from outside hands.; I have had the caddy professionally polished and restored so it is in excellent condition. The hinges work well and the key operates the lock. The shaped handle on top of the caddy seems a bit wobbly, although it quite securely attached. There is some old maize cloth on the bottom that would have protected the owner’s furniture. One of the lids has an old age crack that was restored some time ago.; This is an exquisite and elegant 18th century tea caddy with all its original hardware.; It measures 7-5/8 inches wide, 4-1/2 inches deep and 5-1/4 inches high.
