Description

A picnic food container with lid. The donor inherited this object from his parents who were both doctors in Orissa, India from 1936-1951. It is assumed they purchased their picnic set in the UK before they sailed. The donor remembers using the picnic set on long train journeys from Mumbai (formerly called Bombay) to Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) and on family picnics in the Kond Hills.
