19th Century Handpainted Kashmiri Box
Antique 19th Century Kashmiri round wooden box with lid, handpainted flowers and stylised floral motifs
A beautiful, highly decorative little Kashmiri box, c. late 19th century. It is handpainted in gorgeous tones of red, green, blue, pink and white, all highlighted in gold. The inside of the box and lid is painted in a lovely soft Aubusson-like blue.
Rare to find a wooden one as these were often papier maché.
In its original honest state, bearing the knocks and wear characteristic of an old, well-loved piece which add to its charm.
I’m unsure if the crack down one side is original – as it’s so straight from top to bottom it could always have been like that.
Now over 100 years old, it can still be subject to occasional, gentle use but mainly deserves to retire gracefully where its beauty can be admired!
Measures 11cm high x 16cm diameter.

I aim to post within 2 working days though with the current COVID-19 situation this may be longer as I’m trying to limit trips out, your patience is appreciated in this matter. In order to minimise waste I recycle packaging where possible. Please be assured that your items will still be packaged with the utmost care even if they’re in a cereal box!
I try to describe my items as accurately as possible; noting any wear or damage. Please study the photos carefully as these form part of the description.I consider myself an enthusiast rather than an expert and am bound to get things wrong occasionally eg the date of an item. There is never any intention to mislead. As a lover of vintage I find it easy to overlook minor flaws; often considering them part and parcel of an item which has had a previous life and been used and loved. Indeed, in some cases these flaws make an item more desirable. If you are not sure about anything, please get in touch, I’d rather you were sure than have a disappointed customer!
