Early ship captains hand painted enamel on wood tea box circa 1820. This tea box or container is all original and in excellent condition. There is some minor wear, which is to be expected of a box from this period. It retains its three removable pewter tea containers, one with a slide, and two with covers and inserts. The top is painted with the owner's initials below an anchor, which means the owner was a ship captain. The box measures 9.5 inches wide, 5.5 inches deep, and 5.25 inches high. The design is very typical of the Japanese Edo period (1603 - 1867).
