ORIGINAL PAINTED CABINET
Further to our wonderful collection of original painted furniture is this stunning cabinet. Originating from Jodhpur, Rajasthan this cabinet has been made using a native Indian hardwood – mango wood. The hand painting has been undertaken by a small family group of highly skilled atrists from a small rural village outside of the ‘blue’ city. This size cabinet will more often than not have at least two if not three people working on it simultaneously. The paintings depicted on this piece are of historical hunting scenes with elephants and horses being riden alongside a number of persons. Filled with character and charm this piece is brightly coloured throughout, while additional hand written script has been applied.
Another staggeringly beautiful piece of hand pained furniture we have been fortunate enough to bring into the shop exudes originality. On each door can be found three hand painted panels each reflective of a ‘hunting’ scene. There can be seen animals and people collectively, while on either side of the piece, further figures in their finery have been added. To the top of the piece a floral pattern and design has been painted, while the whole cabinet is adorned in floral motifs. Each door has fitted on it a slim metal handle, while inside you will find two shelves.
This highly original and unique cabinet would bring colour and character into the home, while resonating culture, time and place. This cabinet could be used in a multiple of settings that include in an entranceway or hallway. Outside of this, it could be used in either a living or dining room.
