A very decorative antique Kashmir lacquered papier mache box, possibly a tea caddy, dating from the early 20th century. the cylindrical shaped box stands 4 1/2 inches high and has a base diameter of 3 1/4 inches. It has been beautifully hand painted with flowers on a black background in shades of pink, green, orange and blue.
The box weighs 161g and is in very good condition with just a little wear around the inside rim, commensurate with age and use. This is a lovely decorative piece to add to any collection of Indian boxes or Kashmiri pieces.
