Fine Antique Anglo Indian Mother Carved Box

$1,500

About

Fine antique Anglo-Indian hand carved wooden jewelry box inlaid with mother of pearl, bone and precious wood. Box with a palace architectural motif design intricately carved. Mother of pearl, satinwood adorn this exquisite 19th century inlay box. The inside is lined with royal deep wine red velvet. No key. 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. Museum quality artwork like the ones in Doris Duke Islamic Art Museum.
