A superb antique teak chest - from the South of India - featuring brass detailing demonstrating a high level of craftsmanship. Interestingly, Indian merchants and families would have originally used these authentic old wooden chests for keeping valuables.
At Scaramanga, we feel that this distinctive old chest makes a beautiful memory box or simply a great place to put your valuables.
The polished patina of this teak chest is excellent - and will improve with each new polish.
The chest is mounted on a set of wooden castors for easy in-home mobility...meaning it would make a great feature in a living room, bedroom or a study.
Why not consider an authentic brass or iron padlock to complete the look?
Antique chest size: W79cm x D43cm x H43cm.
Our chests, trunks, coffers and boxes are not new or made to look old. They may have small marks and scratches on them, which are consistent with their age and original use. We feel these add to their character and appeal. Please look at the photos to get an idea of their condition.
