This Indian-inspired casket was made in Scotland by Edinburgh-based goldsmiths Marshall and Sons before it was presented to the Prince in Agra. The sides of the casket are chased with figures that may have been inspired by Hindu deities alongside symbols associated with Britain such as thistles, roses, and the shamrock. Whilst in Agra from 25–27 January, the Prince visited the Taj Mahal, depicted on the address in gold.
