Restored Teak Bridal Chest
Sourced from Rajasthan, these vintage teak bridal chests have been refurbished and imported to our shop here in the UK. Where to start? These pieces are a real showpiece. The front of the trunks are decorated with intricate inlaid metalwork creating beautiful patterns and each side has the original metal handle still intact. The tops have brass plates that add strength and character and two new lockable metal clasps. It is the inside of these trunks, however, that really shows us the love and attention that went into the complicated construction these pieces. On the underside of the lid there are detailed wooden carvings, decorative features and a mirror for the bride to ready herself for her wedding. Below this are around no less than 8 compartments with decorative wooden lids for the storing of jewels and other wedding materials. The middle section of these compartments lifts entirely out of the trunk to allow access to the larger compartment below, perhaps used for storing clothes or fabric. Rare and unusual, these trunks would make a really special gift for a loved one (or yourself!)
