Creating a beautiful metal-plated chest is both an art form and a science that has been perfected by Indian craftsmen over hundreds of years. First, the chest itself is hand carved and fitted by our woodworkers, who then layer the wood with delicate pieces of nickel alloy before polishing the entire piece to a high shine. The original metal overlay furniture can still be seen in the magnificent palaces of northern India, making this white metal chest a true piece of Indian tradition.
The beautiful Indian metal chest you see before you is one of many white metal pieces that we have for sale at Iris Furnishing. If you require a particular size or need an item with certain requirements, just let us know. We regularly place bespoke orders on behalf of our customers so that they can have the furniture of their dreams.
All of the materials used to craft this fine Indian chest are sustainably and ethically sourced. We are committed at Iris Furnishing to high standards of ethical fair trade, and personally make sure that all of our standards are met by travelling to Rajasthan during the year to consult with our craftsmen and suppliers directly.
