Religious Manuscript Box – 3

These boxes were used to store old religious manuscripts in Jain temples. Being that the manuscripts were of a standard size so were the boxes that held them. Every once in awhile the temple holds auctions to raise funds for newer projects and thus these and other temple pieces come on the market. Has original red paint and excellent very old patina.
