c. 1810
This box belongs to a group of furniture and related objects produced in Vizagapatam, situated on the south east coast of India, near Madras. The town operated as a principle trading port from the 17th century due to its position on the major trading routes between Europe and the Far East. Vizagapatam was ideally located as a manufacturing centre with its harbour facilitating the transport of indigenous exotic timbers and materials including teak, sandalwood and ebony. In addition to the production of furniture, Vizagapatam was a hub for the manufacture of dyed cottons attracting European traders from the 17th century onwards
