This is a beautiful vintage Anglo Indian Jewellery box, dating to the 1950s/60s.
This beautiful box is made of solid Sandalwood. It is extremely decorative with its combination of carved panels and intricate inlays.
There is a large raised panel upon the lid and raised panels to all four sides of the box. All of these have beautiful high relief carving.
The panel on the lid depicts the Taj Mahal and its surrounding towers, gardens, and outbuildings. The carving to this panel is absolutely superb! It has finely detailed bricks and windows, fine branch detailing to the bushes, and fine veining detail to the leaves.
The panels to the sides of the box have beautiful leafy vines with veining detail.
The panel on the lid is surrounded by miniature mosaic frames, and there are bands of miniature mosaics on all four sides of the box. Every little piece of the mosaics are painstakingly inlaid by hand. This intricate mosaic work is known as 'Sadeli'. The mosaics are made from several materials, these being wood, bone and white metal.
The edges of the box have bone veneers.
As you can see there is a vast amount of high quality workmanship on this box!
The box stands raised on its original turned brass feet, and is complete with its original lock and hinges. These are stop hinges which prevent the lid from falling back. Please note there is no key. The bottom of the box has its original hessian covering.
The interior has a single storage compartment. This and also the inside of the lid, have their original purple fabric linings.
Please use the following measurements to ensure the box is the right size for your requirements.
