Small items

Jewelry boxes were wedding dowries for storage of valuable items.  They were finely crafted, often with decorative and auspicious carvings.  The boxes were designed to be both secure and easily portable, therefore elaborate engraved brass fittings are common features in their design.
Baskets and other pieces were used to carry fruit, vegetables grain and water as needed. Like jewelry boxes they were also often decorated with auspicious motifs. These and many other interesting items can be seen in our antiques Canberra showroom.
