Hand Painted Six Drawer Chest

Was £49.00, Now £31.00

In Stock

This tall chest will safely hold jewellery, craft or stationery items – the drawers are long enough to take pencils and pens. Made from sustainable mango wood and MDF, the wood is stained a rich, dark mahogany colour. The drawer fronts are individually hand painted and have simple brass ‘O’ ring handles. A circular painted floral motif decorates the top panel.

This item is totally handmade and decorated in Rajasthan by skilled artisans, often working in family groups. Family elders hand down their knowledge, ensuring these traditional, centuries-old skills are not lost. The freehand intricate decoration ensures no two pieces are ever identical.

Further information: Areas of natural grain appearing through the painted finish and ‘scuffing’ to the surface are generic to this type of decoration and should not be regarded as imperfections. Do not use spray polishes or furniture wax – dust using a soft, dry cloth only.

FRUIT WOOD

Further information: Mango, (Mangifera indica), is a huge, hardwood tree, indigenous to most tropical and sub-tropical regions, although man-made plantations are now widespread all over the globe. Some of the largest commercial plantations are to be found in China, California and Andalusia, (Spain). For thousands of years, mankind has utilised all parts of the tree, for both practical and ritualistic purposes. Mango is the largest fruit-bearing tree in the world; having the potential to grow to 100 ft or more. However, as the tree matures, its cropping vigour is significantly reduced, plus the enormous height and scale of the tree makes harvesting the fruits impossible. Therefore, after about 30 year’s growth, plantation trees are felled and young saplings planted to take their place. Because of this, when correctly managed, Mango is one of the most sustainable timbers. The wood is highly prized for its decorative appearance. It comes in a dizzying array of colours and grains and is relatively easy to work. Mango is the national fruit of India. It is said that the Mughal emperor, Akbar, (born circa 1556) loved mangos so much that he supervised the planting of an orchard containing 100,000 trees!

 

 

Care: Should a spill occur wipe wood immediately with a dry cloth only. Do not use silicone spray cleaners or other wax polish this may damage the painted drawers.
