Authentic Antique Damchiya from India. Just listed in our Etsy Shop, link in profile.

This one has great style, mirrors and paint.

An original Rabari tribal cabinet from the Rann of Kutch. These cabinets were one of the few pieces of wooden furniture that the Kutchi people had in their traditional round mud huts. The Rann (meaning marsh) of Kutch is in the far west of the state of Gujarat, an isolated region reputed to be the largest salt desert in the world. During the the seasonal summer monsoons the desert is inundated by river floods and wind driven salt tides from the Arabian Sea. Being a desert with few trees makes wooden furniture very scarce and precious to the people living there.
Known as Damchiyas, Damachiyas or Manjoos, they are usually constructed of teak wood with intricately carved geometric patterns. Each cabinet is traditionally embellished with small round mirrors, metal strapping and more commonly than not, the top front posts carved with symbolic horse heads. All have one simple hinged door in the center for storage with the top of the cabinet being used as shelving for blankets, textiles or other household items.

They make great alter cabinets for the home or yoga studios.

Weight: 81 lbs. 10 ozs.
