Description

Dowries are an important part of many cultures and dowry chests are an important part of a young woman’s possessions that she brings to a traditional marriage. This chest is an English import that probably came originally from India. Hand hammered iron straps secure the wooden sides and top, the bottom is slatted and the entire box sits on bracket feet. The original hook closure allows for a small lock or pin. There is a divider that was added recently for stabilization.  57″ x 34″ x 19″
