An antique Indian hand carved box in sandalwood.  It dates circa 1870 and would have been produced in the Mysore region during the colonial period.  It is profusely carved with leaves and flowers, the lid having a central reserve with Hindu deities.  The box has a lock which is still working, the interior is plain.  It may have been intended for playing cards, jewellery or simply as a desk box.
