Almirahs, both big and small, were a staple piece in almost all Indian households. They were used to store salt and grain in the kitchen, or saris, quilts and other textiles in living spaces and bedrooms. Salvaged from Rajasthan, this 80-year-old almirah was used as a kitchen workspace and to store dried herbs and fragrant spices. Handcrafted from solid teak, it has since been fitted with delicate glass panels and still has its original paintwork intact. We think it would make a lovely sideboard or kitchen hutch when filled with stacks of heirloom ceramics or a set of crystal wine glasses.
