Curly Cherry Tea Caddy

Sheraton Period – early 1800’s
Inlay: curly maple, ebony, holly, kingwood, pear, many others.

Features:
Curly cherry primary wood.
My own design utilizing period motifs. I’ve not seen the striped cove done before – it was tricky to execute.
12 different woods for the home-made bandings and inlays.
Traditional tin-lined inner boxes for tea leaf preservation.
Rope banded edging of Holly and Peruvian Walnut.
French polished shellac and wax finish
