This box is made in India and appears to be quite old. It is stunning in it's depiction of what I believe would be two men from Manipur, India playing the forerunner to polo. That forerunner to polo was a game called Sogal Kangjei and is believed to be the birth of modern polo.

The enameled or cloisonne-esque art work is very nice. There is some crazing. The object is very heavy. It certainly contains some heft. There are numbers on the inside; 578/2. There is a sticker that is fast fading that says "made in India".

While this piece could may not be from the 1800s I believe it to be quite old still. I continue to seek info on the web but...

If you know of a polo player or have an interest in India's history or you just like great old brass boxes...you might want to consider adding this to your collection.

Please see the pictures.

I am willing to send this anywhere in the world. Just contact me for shipping costs if you live outside of the USA or Canada.
