    While in Goa last year I came across this Silver Filigree box. I didn't buy it while I was there, I kept thinking about it, so I got in contact with the person who was selling. Well to cut a long story short I bought it. I have done some research on the box, at first I believed the box was originally from Goa now I have changed my mind, I now think it was handmade in Cuttack India, in the 19th century. There is a very faded hallmark at the bottom of the box.

    This box is very similar to mine there is a slight difference in the legs, the size and weight are more or more or less the same.
    It is a lovely piece and I am very honoured to be the custodian.
    Many thanks for looking.

      I talked to the seller of this Silver box, he was adamant the box was Portuguese, which does make sense, I bought this box in Goa. Goa was a Portuguese colony for 450 years. So I think my first assumption of Cuttack, was wrong.
