18th Century Rosewood Blanket Chest from India


This is a blanket chest from India, made circa 1780. All the metal strapping, handles and lock clasps are handmade of hand-forged iron. There is beautiful hand carving around the bottom edge of the top of the chest. On the right and left front sides are handmade decorative metal panels. The lock clasps have hand-cut decoration on them. The handmade hinges on the top of the chest are in a heart shape. The chest opens to reveal a large area for storage. The finish and condition are wonderful. This would make a great coffee table or a great storage/blanket chest, and is just a wonderful piece of highly decorative furniture that is very unusual.
