This relatively large hand painted oval lidded container was likely to have been made for the luxury goods market to serving British officers and families through quality gift shops in hill stations , cantonments and beyond for export around the turn of the 19th cent. There were two stress cracks suffered in the papier måché manufacture which have been expertly corrected and repaired.

Circa 1900
