Altar Cabinet From Tibet with Original Painting - 19thC

Original Painted Altar Cabinet from Tibet 
This is a very unusual and modern looking design but dates from the late 19thC

These cabinets are constructed from cedar or pine and decorated in the traditional Tibetan colours.
They were often used as family altars & were used to store religious scrolls, silk ceremonial clothes, family jewellery and yak butter used in lamps.
Original antique Tibetan cabinets are now very rare and there are many reproduction pieces made in China coming onto the market.
