This exquisitely detailed teak box is typical of the workmanship of the Himachal tribe of Uttar Pradesh in India. Although intended for use as a type of domestic storage, such as staples, it also was used to store bedding during the daytime. It is a robust rugged piece but earns the title of artwork by virtue of its decorative carving. It could be used as a server in a contemporary interior but because of the versatile timber used in its construction could make a dramatic statement on a covered patio and store cushions or firewood.

Care Instructions
Keep your timber product away from direct sunlight, heat sources, and extreme temperatures to prevent warping or cracking. Regularly dust and clean your timber product using a soft cloth. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials. Occasionally, apply a protective coating such as wax or oil to feed the timber and protect it from moisture and stains. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application and reapplication. Do not place hot or wet items directly on the timber surface as it can cause discolouration and damage the finish. Avoid dragging or sliding heavy objects on the timber surface as it can scratch or damage the finish. If your timber product has any scratches or dents, use a touch-up pen, a wax stick or wood filler to repair it. For additional advice, please contact us.
