Antique Boxes
Antique boxes come in lots of different sizes and styles with various uses from a tea caddy to a jewellery box or stationery writing slope.

Antique Tea Caddy
Antique Tea Caddies were mainly made in the 18th century as Tea was exceptionally expensive so it was locked away in a decorative small box. These were expensive boxes made from rare woods such as rosewood or burr walnut as they were kept out on display.

Antique Writing Slope
