A souvenir/jewellery casket made during the first quarter of the 19th century in Ceylon, present-day Sri Lanka, which was a British colony between 1815 and 1948. The hexagonally shaped casket is constructed from mahogany and ebony, and is decorated with polished quills from a porcupine and features inlaid bone details. All mountings (i.e. the handle, hinges, lock, lock eyelet and lock entry) are original, but a working key is missing, unfortunately. The inside is upholstered with the still original dark blue fabric, and shows an elephant along with the name 'Ceylon' in the centre. The casket contains wonderful contrasts thanks to the use of different materials and shows a fine silky gloss.

This object will be shipped well-packaged and insured!
