Indonesian Dowry Chest

20071

An antique Indonesian hand carved dowry chest from the late 19th century, with intricate floral and equestrian motifs. Hand made during the late years of the 19th century, this exquisite dowry chest captures our attention with its intricately hand-carved décor and polychrome accents. A rectangular lid opens to reveal a convenient storage space showcasing a small box on one of the sides. The entire body is adorned with a lovely hand-carved décor with flowers, horses, & foliage. The polychrome patina presents blue, green, white and mustard highlights that compliment the richly carved structure beautifully.
