The small ivory casket is made of sandalwood and then veneered in ivory. The domed top casket with engraved decoration and borders is typical of the this region in southern India, the region being known as Vizagapatam and is between Calcutta and Madras. The casket reveals a sandalwood interior with more engraved decoration, with silvered brass lock and hinges. The beautiful decoration to all four sides is original and in fantastic condition. The carved ivory feet are in good original condition and this beautiful antique ivory casket is really unusual because of its size.
