An antique Victorian wooden box, old tea caddy, with walnut veneer, late Victorian in date.

This is a beautiful late Victorian veneered box. It started life as a tea caddy with two lidded compartments. However all the internal fittings have been lost so I have rubbed down the inside and eco-felted the bottom (I haven't glued this), as the bottom was marked. It is a deep box and could have a number of uses in its upcycled life!
For a box which is 130 years old it has survived well and the colour of the wood is lovely

Measurements: 20 x 12 x 14 cms / 8 x 4.75 x 4.5 inches high.

Condition: Good vintage condition. Minor scratches and dings as befits its age. Usual wear to the plating on the brass fittings. Hinges are good. Closes nicely but there is no key. I have cleaned and polished and left the underside original.

All postage is tracked, I post worldwide.

Hopefully you will love your item but I offer a no-quibble refund if it isn't quite what you wanted! I combine postage wherever possible.

I love this little butterfly. It matches perfectly with a top I have that has some tiny butterflies printed on it. It arrived as stated. I'm really happy with it, thank you.
