#47 Portable Tibetan painted leather chests.


Small portable chests like these were used for storing or transporting valuable treasures, while traveling or in the home. This pair belonged to the same merchant family for several generations. Made from sturdy yak hide, portable leather chests like these, have been used since the days of the Silk Road. They are typically made in this sloped shape, with a scallop edged lid. They are reinforced with decorative brass metal work along the edges and the original clasp. The exquisite gold imprint of the rondels and border design on this pair have maintained their beautiful luster and this 17th century pair is in remarkable condition. Price is for the set.
