Rare Indo-Portuguese Ivory and Ebony Inlaid Jackfruit Chest of Drawers

Ref: C2679

This rare Goan dresser, with ivory and ebony inlaid in incredibly intricate patterns, using tiny lozenge, dot and star elements, this very large Indian chest houses six drawers; two stacks of three each. It sits atop four, wonderful, carved feet in the form of cats; a whimsical touch. Notice also, the intricately cut brass escutcheons and pulls. The lion feet are later additions.
