This is the archetypal Regency,
George IV, William IV, and early Victorian tea chest. Sarcophagus
shaped, with feet and handles, and given depth with gadrooning.
The form in all its variations remained popular for many decades,
although the veneers became thinner as the century progressed.
Earlier versions like the one here tend to have well made canisters
and carefully finished interiors. Furthermore they are structured
with care. Note the gadrooned base, the well turned feet and the
complex loop handles.
