Anglo-Indian Vizagapatam Jewelry Inlaid Sadeli Box



Anglo-Indian jewelry box, inlay with ebony, mosaic Sadeli and mother of pearl and bone. The ancient art of Sadeli Mosaic is said to have been introduced from Shiraz in Persia via Sind to Bombay, a long time before the Anglo Indian boxes were made. It was a technique, which required a high degree of skill and patience. It was executed very lavishly, in that the frequent cuts wasted a great amount of the precious materials used. The workmanship was however more than commensurable to the value of the materials. Hand carved on the top with a scene of a lion chasing an elephant. Sides are hand carved and inlay. Exceptional construction throughout with engraved bone details throughout. Anglo-Indian Vizagapatam box. Circa 1910-1920.
