Kashmiri Indian papier-mache ( or paper mache) jewelry or trinket box 4 3/4" x 3 3/4" and 1 1/2" high. 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. Boxes often have flowers or animals - figures are a bit unusual.

The interior, bottom and background color is black. The box has a Moghul court scene on the top and 2 figures on each of the sides. The box is covered with a clear lacquer which gives it a soft shine.

The former owner purchased this in India in the mid 1970's. It has been displayed, but never actually used. There is slight wear on one corner, but is in overall very good condition. All sides if the box are shown in the photos.
