Rosewood and ivory writing table, Vizagapatam, India for the English market

Table or traveller's writing case, made of rosewood inlaid with ivory, Vizagapatam, a port located on the east coast of India.
The place was famous since the end of the 17th century for the know-how of its craftsmen, encrusting or inlaying the ivory. The decorations were inspired by Indian flowers mixed with Western motifs. These creations were very successful thanks to the purchases brought back from their stays by the leaders of the English East India Company created by Elizabeth I.
A similar model is in the Victoria & Albert museum in London, dated 1750.
Ours is from the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
