Antique Damchiya 2

103.5cm L x 60cm W (48cm wide for flat top) x 78cm H.

This beautiful old piece is a 'damchiya' or dowry chest. It is around 100 years old and was used to store the bride's belongings when she went to live with her new husband's family. I call this one 'raw' because of it's lovely  light patina. But it has a very, very light whitewash. It is a beautiful washed-out colour...almost a grey. It would work so well in a coastal or Scandinavian home. This piece is extra special as it has very interesting openings on each side (see images). It has open storage inside.
