Pakistani Grain Chest

Country of Origin: Pakistan


Material: Cypress Wood

Description: Beautiful medium sized grain chest from the Punjab region of Pakistan. The red and yellow paintwork typical of this style of furniture has aged wonderfully, with the deeper colouring now enhancing the hues of the cypress wood. This wedding chest would have been part of a bride’s dowry and used to store clothing, jewellery and other personal effects.

Age & Overall Condition: Early to mid 20th century, Punjab region, Pakistan. Condition reflective of age – fading of painting for example but no significant structural damage.
