This is a nice Henkel-Harris wooden tea caddy with brass hardware. It also has a metal lining on the inside and felt feet on the bottom. Stamped on the bottom: Virginia Galleries, Furniture by Henkel-Harris, Winchester Virginia. And 3, 71, which we believe may be a date code (month/year), but are unsure.
Henkel-Harris was started in 1946 in Winchester, Virginia and is still in business today. They have a website that covers their history.
And how they became know for their quality work of fine American furniture. The felt feet are not perfect, the lining is somewhat stained and there is no key. It looks like the may be a small crack near the top of the key area where the locking mechanism is.
6" long x 6" wide x 5 high. There is not a key with this item.
It would need a barrel ended type skeleton key with one notch at the end, similar to jewelry boxes. Please examine the pictures closely to make sure this will meet your condition requirements. Our antique, vintage, and collectible items come from various places.
