Very fine English papier mache tea caddy, inlaid with mother of pearl, signed by the most high end of papier mache manufacturers, Jennens and Bettridge. In excellent condition. 5 1/2" X 9 1/4" X 5 1/2" tall. In 1839 Jennens and Bettridge became Makers for the Queen so this box predates that. They received a patent for inlaid mother of pearl work in 1825 dating this to 1825-1838. The painting is of the highest quality for this shop as well.
