Description

The teapoy was a piece of small furniture, developed in the 18th century to house and lock away a popular and expensive commodity: tea. In form, they were like an over-sized tea caddy on a base. This mahogany teapoy dates from the early 19th century. With 8 sides, it sits neatly on 4 finely turned legs that end in small brass castors. The top, veneered and cross grained, opens onto the fitted interior with 2 removable caddies and 2 tin lined compartments. Brass lions head handles are replacements. The condition is very good throughout; please note slight cracking to the veneer on the top, a small section of the reeded bottom edge, front left side, restored, and a knock to the wood on the back. This teapoy is of superb quality with a rich colour and patina. Circa 1820
