Description

The Dowry Chest, also known as Hope Chest or Bride's Chest was and still is a traditional and functional component of Oriental culture.

Dowry chests were filled with linens, jewellery, copper and brass articles, money, medicinal-herbs, clothing for future children, and even important documents noting marriages, births, and other family histories.

The chest for sale was produced in the 18th century and is made of cedar wood. It has been nicely carved and incorporates a typical access door.

The chest originated in Nuristanswat-verlly (Swat Valley) in North West Pakistan.
