Superb Antique Anglo Indian Carved Inlaid Jewellery Box

This is a beautiful antique Anglo Indian jewellery/trinket box. It dates to 1900/1910 and is complete with its original key.

This beautiful box is made of solid Sandalwood. It has a wonderful, intricately carved raised section to the lid, plus intricately carved raised panels to all 4 sides. The carving to the lid features a Fox among leafy vines, and that to the panels feature a row of singular Clover like leaves.

The feature to the lid is surrounded by a miniature mosaic frame and there are strips of miniature mosaics on all 4 sides of the box. This intricate mosaic work is known as 'Sadeli'. Each piece is painstakingly inlaid by hand and all of the carving has been done by hand too. As you can see there is a fabulous amount of quality workmanship on this box!

The interior has a single compartment which is complete with its original printed paper lining. This is a lovely shade of lavender. The inside of the lid is complete with its original purple velvet covering.

The box has its original brass lock and stop hinges which prevent the lid from falling back. A new plum coloured paper covering has been added to the base of the box.

The box is in wonderful condition with only minor light age-related wear. There are a few small pieces of mosaic inlay missing. These are not overly noticeable and do not detract from the beautiful overall appearance of the box.


Locking the box is a little fiddly and it sometimes releases when you lift up the lid. The key should be positioned high up in the lock before you turn it. We are listing the lock and key as for decorative purposes only, due to the above issues.
