Indo-Portuguese Brass Mounted Teak Alms Box

Ref: T0986

Hand fashioned, with a teakwood carcass, this unusual piece features hand hammered brass sheeting encasing it, with a scalloped and pierced gallery around the hexagonal top. Notice the tiny, locked door at the base, for removing the donations. This piece would make a nice, little night stand, or a chair-side table.
