A Regency sarcophagus shaped chest naively decorated with figures, landscapes and pagodas. With a kite shaped bone escutcheon, pressed brass lionmask ring handles and lionpad feet. The pink ruched velvet and silk ball lined lid lifts to reveal two removable decorated tea caddies and a glass sugar bowl. Circa 1810.
