Painted in traditional colours of red, green and yellow, this takhat has floral motifs similar to the Bikaner school of painting. While a takhat of this type has not been recorded on field, there are representations in miniature paintings that indicate the use of such furniture as offering tables in front of deities or ceremonial occasions.
