This Bombay Box side table is a reproduction of the original campaign Bombay Boxes used in the 1930’s. Typically strapped to cars filled with wine and wares intended for a long safari, these side tables with drawers are a unique addition to home decor. Bombay Boxes can be used as side tables, end tables or even a feature piece. Bombay Box side table is handmade from cherry wood, comes with three drawers and a slide out shelf, has brass hand pulls. 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 (N.S.Wales) went every year in the Twenties to select camel breeding stock for the Australian outback. Bringing along a stock of fine wines like Chateau 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.
