Brass Inlaid Teak Dowry Chest From South India - 19thC
Traditionally the bride’s family had to offer gifts to the bridegroom’s family if they were to find a good husband for their daughter. Dowry was mostly Gold jewellery and Silk saris but sometimes brass cooking pots and other family treasures were exchanged. In modern times dowry is supposed to have been made an illegal practice. In reality it is still practised and cars and even washing machines have been known to be exchanged.
