An 18th century straw work tea caddy, skilfully made from pine covered with thin natural & dyed straw to create wonderful elaborate marquetry patterns. The sides each have a different flower marquetry and are framed with further elaborate designs. The lid features an incredible image of two peasants, one with a pipe and the other drinking beer. Opening this reveals more superb floral marquetry unspoilt by the light showing bright red, green and yellow flowers. With a single bone handled floating lid and most of its original tin foil lining.
