There are two tin lined compartments in this elegantly painted tea box. Each compartment cover has a lid that is adorned with a mother of pearl knob.
There are no maker marks or signatures on this box to help date when it was made.
Approximately 6 3/4 inches across and 4 1/2 inches wide - measured across the top of the lid. Each compartment is approximately 2 3/4 inches deep.
There is crazing on the black paint throughout this piece, which can be seen in some of the photos. The inside hinge on the right side is loose. It appears there may have been a repair done on the back of the lid where the hinges are. Both interior lids have crazing on the top of them. The mother of pearl knobs are in very good condition for their age. Three of the four corners of the lid have a crack in them. The paint is worn in a lot of areas. There is no key for the lock.
