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 seasonal grain. It was handcrafted from solid teak, fitted with delicate glass panels and polished in a natural wax to protect its original blue paintwork.
