The decoration was inspired by the miniature Mughal paintings of the 17th and 18th centuries in India. Each scene is hand painted over true silver leaf, accented with areas of gold leaf. There are scenes of courtly life, the hunt, lovers, gardens and exotic animals. Truly one of a kind and custom made, there is no other like it. The chest has no drawer pulls because owner chose to display it as a work of art; however, drawer pulls could easily be added. Measures 30 inches wide, 14 inches deep, and 28.5 inches high. Lovely condition.
