A lovely looking original Indian Damchiya chest with wonderful handcrafted detail and woodworking. Its colourful panels - and its sheer overall size - make it extremely desirable as a statement piece. We estimate it was hand-carved roughly 80-100 years ago in Northern Indian.
Antique Indian Damchiya size: W120cm x D54cm x H106cm (total depth 62cm including handcrafted protrutions).
Damchiyas or Indian hope chests were originally designed and made to store a bride's dowry or wedding gifts. Our team of expert restorers in Rajasthan have simply washed, waxed and fitted a shelf into the main compartment.
Its storage space is accessed via multiple front-mounted hinging doors. The large chest would look great in the bedroom as for linen or clothes storage or perhaps in the living room for displaying your treasures. Imagine this Damichya as a high-profile sideboard or storage cupboard in a modern rustic, retro or contemporary styled interior.
