This sandook was placed in the corner of the bedroom of the house. One half of the top surface formed the lid of this sandook, which was hinged to the other half. Two smaller trunks were kept on the fixed part of the top surface. The sandook, along with other furniture in the house, was painted using white oil-based paint.
