Stunning old Indian Dowry Chest
This chest was recycled back in the 70's from 500 yr old timber and came to Australia back then. We bought it from a friend and took it home only a day or two before his place burned down. This is the provenence as it was told to us by our friend who haled from India.
This is abzolutley stunning with intricate art work and heavy metal fixtures. You can still smell the timber when you open the box! I used it in my bedouin stylt tent for about 10 years but now it needs another home.
There is a small spot of damage which is shown in the photos but otherwise in grea shape. Plesase note it is 40-50 years old so there are some signs of wear.
We are happy to deliver any where within 200ks of our home at a cost of $20.00 per 100 ks (Round trip) otherwise pick up
Dimensions are approx H 37 cms W 58cms D 32cms
We will also work with you to arrange a courier if needed
