Painted "Damchiya" Dowry Chest From Madhya Pradesh - 19thC

A5828

£1,365.00
This painted teak dowry chest from Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat is known as a Damchiya. Traditionally the bride’s family had to offer gifts known as Dowry - to the bridegroom’s family if they were to find a good husband for their daughter. Dowry was normally 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, but in reality it is still practiced and cars and even washing machines have been known to be exchanged.
