A 'Pettagama' S, 'Pettakam' T, used to store items in the last century, Bope, Sri Lanka.

Varying in size from small where articles of silk and jewelry was locked up, to bushels of paddy in huge versions, this design in wood was used extensively in the last century in Sri Lanka. Decorative carvings on the Mahogany wood with brass inlays, this is used as 'objets d art' in hotels and houses now.
