Rare antique calamander wood dome top tea caddy with brass fittings. Made in England c1850. Measures 8.75 inches wide by 4.75 inches deep by 6.5 inches high. Calamander wood, aka coromandel wood, is a valuable wood from Sri Lanka (Ceylon) and other parts of South East Asia. It is hazel-brown with black stripes, very heavy and hard. It is also called macassar ebony or variegated ebony, and is closely related to genuine ebony, but is obtained from different species in the same genus. Coromandel wood has been logged to extinction over the last 2 to 3 hundred years and is no longer available. Macassar ebony has similar characteristics but it lacks the depth of color of genuine coromandel.
