Bombay Box Black in Timber with Brass Fittings

The Camel Fair is held next to the temple of Savitri in Pushkar, Rajasthan. Once a year over 80,000 camels, cows, sheep, goats, and horses, some 200,000 merchants, farmers, bandits, thieves, and a variety of human existence gather to find enlightenment and/or commerce. This is where Mary and John Newby from Arkaroola (NSW) went every year in the Twenties to select camel breeding stock for the Australian outback. Bringing along a stock of fine wines like Ch√Ęteau Soutard and bottles of Vieille Reserve Armagnac 1883 to survive hardship, they strapped campaign boxes onto their Bentleys and headed to the desert for a week or so to live in tents.

Measurements: 40 x 56.5 x 66cm.
