Antique Indian Carved Sandalwood Jewellery Box with Hindu Deities Mysore c1860 (Code 2550)

  • £36500


A mid 19th century colonial Indian carved box in sandalwood.  The top is carved with Hindu deities and the rest of the box has detailed foliate carving.  The box is most likely from the Mysore region and dating around 1860.  It has four brass feet and a lock with key.  The interior is plain with no fittings or divisions, at the size it could be a jewellery box, or a desk item etc.



Lock does throw, but will not lock as it fouls the latchplate, likely through movement/shrinkage over the decades.  Some marks to the interior and exterior with a darker patch to the front corner, perhaps through contact with an oil based cosmetic, similar small patch to left side.  Minor shrinkage splits to base, corner of base sheet missing by one foot.  Some movement in the joints. All typical of period, generally looks good as can be seen in the images.
