Beautiful old tea box from China.
Made of varnished wood, decorated with gold decoration of Chinese pagoda and temples in a landscape with trees.
In the inside it holds the original tea caddies; the cans in which the dried tea was kept. The box is equipped with a lock because tea was an expensive product at the time. Unfortunately the key is no longer present.
Some damage due to age, see photos. The gold-plated drawing on the top has also worn more than on the outsides.
Measurements: 20 cm x 12 cm x 12 cm
(width x height x depth)
Very light weight.
