Tibetan Cabinet with Original Paint - circa 100 yrs old

Tibetan cabinets are constructed from cedar or pine and decorated in the traditional Tibetan colours. They were often used as family altars. They were uised as storage for important religious scrolls, silk ceremonial clothes , family jewellery and yak butter used in lamps. Torkham (or Torgam) cabinets were used to store ritual cakes or torma, they are often decorated with tantric designs. Original antique Tibetan cabinets are now quite rare and there are many reproduction pieces made in China coming into the market.
