Carved wooden box | four drawers
An unusual carved wooden box from India with four drawers of different sizes.
Two of the drawers have domed tops, which slide to open and reveal storage spaces that could be used for jewellery, for example.
The overall effect is architectural, the box resembles a domed temple with side buildings. The knob on the lid of one of the drawers is in the hope of a human face. The entire box is heavily carved from a dark coloured wood. The carving patterns are both geometric and floral.
