We are delighted to offer this wonderful large chess / backgammon/games box made in the Vizagapatam region of India in the mid 19th century , this fine box is lined with sandalwood and veneered in a combination of ivory and horn as well as other exotic timbers to the interior , the box houses three smaller storage boxes that fit neatly inside , each of which is finely decorated using finely carved and stained details , when housed inside the outer box the whole closes to form the appearance of a lockable book , a remarkable piece of Indian craftsmanship !!
The condition can only be described as remarkable for its age and use of materials , minor age related hairlines would be my only observation.
