Anglo-Indian (Vizagapatam) box in wood covered in horn, of sarcophagus form, with a segmented radiating 
top culminating in a turned and carved floral finial. An Indian interpretation of English 
Regency aesthetic. This is a small box which shows absolute mastery of design.

Size: 18.5 cm wide by 13 cm by 11cm:  7.3 inches wide by   5.1inches by   4.3 inches.

Condition: good overall for the type of work. There is a small patch on one of the facings and on 
one of the sides. Tiny nip on one corner. Slight moving away on account of the nature of 
the materials which do not always dry and shrink at the same rates; working lock and key; see images.
