Rustic antique jewellery box or cabinet. Asian origin crude yet elegant
This is an incredible peice of village hand crafted furniture - probably a jewellery box or possibly a spice draw and cupboard.
It measures just over 30cm high and is 20cm wide x 10cm deep.
The workmanship is crude yet really sets off the nature of this handmade piece. We think it was made around teh early 1900's and is of Indian or East Asian origin. The wood is inlaid with decorative brass. This is most definitely NOT a machine mass produced piece and woudl make a wonderful gift or display piece.
