Antique Colonial Indian Carved Sandalwood Glove Box with Shiva, Mysore c1860 (Code 2594)
A mid 19th century colonial Indian sandalwood box. It is profusely carved with tight floral detail and a central image of the Hindu god Shiva with attendants. There are also elephants to the lid and birds around the sides. The low rectangular form could have been for many uses including for gloves. It has a working lock which appears original. The interior is plain and unlined. The felt to the base is of course a replacement.
Good for period, some small losses to the carving. Lock and hinges good. Minor gaps at some of the joints through natural shrinkage with signs of old glue. Shrinkage split to lid interior.
