Address case

circa 1875

RCIN 11217

On the Prince’s arrival at each place, formal addresses were read to him and were later presented in lavish caskets or cases to commemorate the event. Many of these were decorated using techniques associated with the region. The border of this hinged address case is embellished with intricate filigree and granulation. The process, which involves the application of wires and grains of gold, was a highly skilled technique used by Tamil goldsmiths working in Ceylon.
