Writing Box with Lattice and Flower Design. Object Name: Writing box; Date: mid-17th century; Geography: Made in India, Deccan, possibly Burhanpur; Medium: Wood; overlaid with dyed wool, stamped silver and gilt-copper plaques; Dimensions: H. 5 3/8 in. (13.6 cm); Classification: Metal; Credit Line: Purchase, Dr. Mortimer D. Sackler, Theresa Sackler and Family Gift, 1998 / The gilded copper sheets and silver plaques covering the exterior of this box are fashioned in a classic lattice and flower variant of the flower style. Because of the technique of fastening the metal over the wood, the box has been attributed to Burhanpur, a city in the northern Deccan, where similar work is found in architecture.; Provenance: Private collection, England; [ Terence McInerney, New York, by 1997-98; sold to MMA]
