At first glance this lacquered, sarcophagus shaped box looks black but I think it is actually burgundy / brown. It is decorated with figures and plants in shades of gold with a touch of red still visible here and there. The tea caddy was probably made in the middle of the 19th century; below, an old label by F. Begaud-Soyer.

The box has been well used, which resulted in some wear to the decoration. There are some cracks and chips at the corners and edges. Additionally, it was made with four claw-shaped feet, but one being missing, the third was centered to stabilize it. Inside there is a single pewter insert, warped by time. The insert still contains traces of tea, the round cover is missing. Please take a good look at the photos and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
