Included among the decorative arts on offer will be this 8in (20cm) wide 19th century wooden sarcophagus-shaped English tea caddy which has descended through the family of a late collector in Katonah, New York.

It is fitted with two lidded compartments, set on bun feet and has a mother-of-pearl escutcheon with a key. The estimate is $200-400.
