Lovely old antique Indian teak trunk that’s had camel bone inlay recently added by a Rajasthani craftsman.
The intricate bone work has been set in classic and circular patterns, making it a striking storage or blanket box, with useful deep space, small compartment inside, and complete with brass hasp and handles.
As it’s a vintage box, it does show signs of wear in places.
NB rest assured that no camel was harmed in the process.
OLD OR UNUSUAL INDIAN FURNITURE
These old or unusual items are mainly from Rajasthan, India. Many items are part new, designed around original old doors to create practical cupboards and sideboards with a traditional Indian feel. Other pieces are true original Indian pieces once used in their homes such as damchiyas (originally used to store the brides dowry) or we’ve even had an old Indian village fridge! Want something different? Then old or unusual is the place to look.
Due to the nature of these pieces each item will vary, with the colours, patterns and metal work on the wood differing from one to another. Please contact us prior to purchase if you would like let us know your preference and see photos of the exact item we would send you.
Made in India.
