Who used these storage cabinets?

Furniture in Tibet according to all historical accounts only existed in monasteries and lamaseries. The secular home, regardless of the financial assets or the religious following had no furniture. What we consider throw rugs or hall runners were the beds, chairs, and sofas of the Tibetan. Monks had some small altars or tables, the larger pieces were exclusively made for lama's and the best pieces were made for visiting high lama's residences. Monasteries typically have a residential compound reserved for a visiting high lama and/or many times one reserved for the Dalai Lama. Over the years these Lama's cabinets were passed down or sold to another lama or monk. It is the usual custom for the possessions of a monk or lama to be sold upon his death and the proceeds dispersed as directed by the deceased person prior to his death.

If you would like to be informed when I add more Lama's offering/storage cabinets, please log on to our shopping cart and subscribe to the newsletter. Please note that we have a limited number of cabinets available and have not been able to find any other certifiable antique or vintage Tibetan furniture; however, we find plenty of fakes that we see showing up on other web sites.
