Larger than most of the Kashmiri Indian papier-mache ( or paper mache) jewelry and trinket boxes you see, this box is 6 1/4" across and 3" high and slightly domed on the top. These boxes are constructed in a painstaking manner and are not as delicate as the name might imply. These boxes have been made in Kashmir since the mid 1800's and are considered a regional folk art.
The box is round, with a notched lid that keeps the decorative flower design lined up. The interior, bottom and background color is black. It is gaily hand painted in pink, rose red and yellow, with touches of blue and green. All the flowers are outlined in gold gilt paint. The box is covered with a clear lacquer which gives it a soft shine.
The box is about 40 - 50 years old and does have some minor wear at the edges and the remnants of a sticker on the bottom. There is also a small area (about 1/4") of peeled paint where the sticker was removed.
We are happy to combine orders when possible.
