This before photo is of a wrecked rare, old & valuable tea caddy. Many parts of the mother of pearl sections were missing. The parts needed had to be salvaged off other mother of pearl objects and then cut with glass equipment for precise measurements. The parts were bonded as needed and the entire tortoise / mother of pearl tea caddy was conditioned for longer life. The after photo shows the tea caddy restored and the box closed.
