An Anglo Indian Vizagapatam work ivory box. The top and sides smothered with pen work decoration and scenes. Vizagapatam on the northern Coromandel coast is a natural harbour midway between Calcutta and Madras. The British East India Company had an important trading station there and a tradition grew in Vizagapatam for the manufacture of objects and furniture of Western form, decorated in a distinctive manner, all being inlaid or veneered with black lacquer. The decoration was drawn from Mogul culture, adapted to appeal to western taste. Restored.
