George III Period 18th Century Satinwood Inlaid Tea Chest

George III Period 18th Century Satinwood Inlaid Tea Chest

England

circa 1795

The rectangular top is cross-banded in tulipwood and boxwood stringing and decorated in the centre with flowers and a flamed mahogany oval panel. The original silvered axe head handle opens another hinged lid to reveal two lidded tea compartments and a later English cut- glass mixing bowl. The inside of the lid is most unusual in that it is cross-banded and inlaid with the initials 'CS.' The tea caddy chest is fitted with a silver escutcheon above a satinwood cross banding at the bottom of the tea chest.
