We have never seen a chest like this before! It is made from Rosewood with very nice quality inset brass military handles. Drawer opening below - top opening lid. This would make a fabulous coffee table. There is a brass nameplate on the top with an engraved name - probably a Portuguese priest who commissioned the chest.
Chests and boxes from India are found in an extraordinary variety of styles reflecting the many cultures that influenced India. They were usually made from Teak, rosewood or jackfruit wood. They were used for storing valuables such as textiles, jewellery and cash. Our pieces are mostly from the 19th century & occasionally 18th and early 20th century.
