Hello all,

Thank you very much for your speedy reply. has been a very resourceful forum site. If you have seen the book "Damascus: Hidden Treasures of the Old City by Brigid Keenan" on page 7 - the introduction is an image of a reception room in Bait Mujallid ( i have atached an image of the photo here) . In the back ground is some thing that looks like a cupboard that is gilded with rococo design and mirrors. The Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia has one of similar structure. It looks like a window but after opening the doors it looked more like a cupboard door.

1) Is it meant to be used as a cupboard or just as decoration for the reception hall?

2) Are these cupboards typical in any houses or mainly in grandeur royal houses?

3) If it is a cupboard why was it built into the walls?

Thank you again for your help.
