    I found this beautiful Indian box at the Alameda Flea Mkt today. I'm not sure what kind of enamelling this is, but it's signed 'India' along w/ some other words on the bottom. It's beautifully constructed with many screws on the bottom and bright green velvet inside. I think it's got some age to it as well.

    probably a jewelry box.

      Wow, I can't imagine how many hours of work (and patience) went into making it. Lovely.

      I just found out that this type of engraving with enamels is known as Benares Ware. This is a particularly good quality one.

      this is probably the best quality piece of Benares Ware that i have. Some of the elephant bells are good too.
