This is a lovely pastel blue chest which has an authentic distressed surface finish and a wonderful patina.
Its many small marks and scratches on its surface are consistent with its age and original use. We at Scaramanga feel these add to its character and appeal.
This box would make this piece a great feature in a living room, bedroom or in a study.
The lid lifts to reveal a single compartment and side chamber which can be locked with one of our vintage brass padlocks.
This distinctive old chest would make beautiful jewellery or memory boxes or a great place to put your valuables.
Indian merchants would have originally used these authentic old wooden chests for keeping money, valuables, notes and records…and by the manner by which this box has been made to be super strong it would have stored items or money of great value.
We also have antique brass padlocks available to complement our old wooden chests and trunks.
Size: W58cm x D34cm x H26cm.
You can tell by the colour variation between the lid and main body that there has been some historical repair work and lid upcycled at some point in its long life.
