Traditional almirahs, big and small, were a staple in every Indian household. They sometimes stored salt and grain in the kitchen, or even saris, quilts and other textiles in the bedroom. Uncovered in Rajasthan, this raised 60-year-old almirah was from a rural haveli of the region and may have been used to house seasonal grain. It has been crafted from solid teak, fitted with 2 delicate glass panels and polished in a natural wax to protect its original paintwork.
