This unique one-of-a-kind item is an automated scene of the Hindu god Vishnu. The interior scene begins its automation when the top lid of the case is opened. This colorful painted scene shows Vishnu with an arm going in an up/down motion while the servant located to the left of the scene bows to this Hindu god. The colorful scene is finely detailed with the god Vishnu shown holding a discus and a conch shell, while another hand is holding a lotus flower. The silver and gilt box automatically pops open when a silver lever on the front is activated. The top of the box is beautifully detailed with silver/gold gilt engraving of Vishnu. Gilt outer edge work, fancy lotus flowers and leaves are engraved on the outer edges of the box. The box is in mint condition and it is presented with an original fitted leather case.
