Antique Anglo Indian Carved Teak Dome Top Box with Initials & Working Lock (Code 1177)
A mid to late 19th century Anglo Indian carved domed top box. It has decorative channels carved in the Northern Indian style with small flowers. The top features a set of carved interlocking initials, these are rather hard to make out but may be 'RDL' or similar. The lid hinges to reveal a plain interior and there is a working lock with key. The box is reasonably deep for it's proportions and is sturdy along with two carved handles so may have been for something reasonably heavy for it's size. It has a plinth base with green felt (which is a replacement). The wood appears to be teak and it is very nicely made and was clearly a quality piece. A fine item for the desk or to store some precious objects.
Good for period. Minor wear, marks, knocks and minor shrinkage splits as you would expect for the age. Interior has two drilled (and filled) holes possibly from a previous mounting, not visible to underside due to felt covering. Hinges and lock work fine. A nice example.
