A simple and elegant George III Chippendale period mahogany tea caddy

England, circa 1760.


Why we like it

A rather charming object of great colour and patination. Often, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.


The English satirist Jonathan Swift (1667–1745) wrote in his Directions to Servants (1729) about "small chests and trunks with lock and key, wherein they keep the tea and sugar."
