The dowry chest, also known as the bride's chest, was and still is a traditional and functional component of oriental culture. Originating in Swat valley, the most popular oriental dowry chests were filled with linen, jewellery, money, copper & bronze items, medicinal herbs and even clothing for future children and the important ones.
This unique piece of jewelery is not an industrially manufactured mass-produced product, but rather high-quality craftsmanship with many lovingly crafted details. All parts are handcrafted from solid wood.
*Real, oriental handicrafts are fundamentally different from mass-produced goods from the Far East. Each piece is a hand-made one-of-a-kind! Irregularities in shape, color or material are no reason for complaint. These properties make each individual item a collector's item and underline the authenticity of the goods.
*Due to photography and handwork, color variations may occur.
