1910-1920 Benares Ware Brass and Enamel Indian Jewelry Casket or Box - Tiger Hunt Scene

230.25

Stunning 1910-1920 Indian Benares ware enamel and brass jewelry box featuring tiger hunt scenes on the lid. Heavy box with a perfectly fitting lid and a beautiful faded green velvet lining. Everything in great shape with some losses to nickel plating and some evidence of corrosion to the brass which I have not polished off because the box has an overall great patina and look.

These Indian boxes were hand-engraved and enameled in the early 20th century and very finely engraved at that

Price is firm.
