Traditional almirahs, big and small, were a staple in any Indian household. They sometimes stored salt and grain in the kitchen, or even saris and textiles in the bedroom. Uncovered in Rajasthan, this petite 60-year-old almirah was from a rural haveli of the region and may have been used to house fresh produce and seasonal grain. It was handcrafted and carved from solid teak, fitted with delicate glass panels and polished in a warm natural wax.
