The Prince of Wales observed the Trichinopoly illuminations and fireworks from a pavilion and was amazed by the sight. A small watercolour by an unknown hand capturing the scene can be found in this address. The body of the gold scroll case is worked in high relief showing Hindu deities such as Ganesh, Shiva, Krishna, and Saraswati.
