A late 18th century Indian silver mounted padouk writing box on a George III stand, the serpentine hinged lid enclosing a removable fitted interior with compartments for ink-wells and pens around blue leather lined writing slope enclosing further drawers and compartments, above three lidded wells, on a original stand with patera-headed square tapering legs, with brass caps and castors.

Anglo-Indian furniture is a significant aspect of English furniture history; a quantity of finely made pieces was made in India in more or less English or true Indian forms. This piece is a highly sophisticated example of the first category, and an especially notable Indian feature are the undulating sides and curious and charming starburst silver mounts, perhaps inspired by the stars of the English noble orders, for example, The Garter and the Bath.
