    Inherited tobacco related storage & mixing box I've been told. Curious as to the approximate age? Thx

      I believe this may be a tea caddy ..

      Thanks for your comment and it looks like you might be right! My father (now deceased) always thought it was tobacco related with the glass jar used for mixing and the included sheaved blade for cutting the leaf. What looks like a small snuff box was also with the item. Interesting that tea was considered expensive enough to keep under lock & key. It was brought to Sydney by his grandfather from the UK :)

      Under the magazine>collectibles section of the site is an interest article about tea caddys.

      An interesting read - It all comes back to taxes by the sound of it - Would you say that this item is likely made from rosewood by the red colour and likely age? Thanks
