Vintage Antique Kashmir India Paper Mache Lidded Balm Jar for Boudoir Vanity Tray
Small Antique Trinket Box - lovely gift for bohemian friend; the jar has the "Summer of Love" vibe.
This is a round Kashmir Style or Indian hand painted and crafted lidded jar in a floral pattern of red, orange, beige and gold flowers and scrolls on a black background. All of the colors are faded especially on the lid, which has more patina than the rest of the box.
This may have been made for the purpose of storing salve or balm - and it would do a good job of that - but the lid does not fit snuggly like on a newer more machine made item.
This type of item is known as paper maché but it could be wood - I am not sure.
3" diameter, 2" height.
