With silver stringing dividing each beautifully shaped and very impressive figured tortoiseshell panels, a silver escutcheon and vacant initial plate to the top. Lifting the tortoiseshell tea caddy's lid reveals ivory facings framing two tortoiseshell lids with turned ivory handles, and its original luxurious velvet backing on the main tea caddy lid. The two lidded tea compartments contain traces of their original tin foil lining.
