Chests & Boxes

Cash Boxes or merchant boxes were an everyday item found in shops throughout India used to hold the days business proceeds. Divided into different sections they often have a secret compartment and make wonderful jewelry boxes. The Jain boxes were used to house old religious texts and are all painted in the traditional red with stylized designs. They are very old. As of present we have only one large strong box made of teak and one smaller English campaign chest in stock and no other larger chests.
