Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
As seen here, they resembled a large chest, and were carried by four men, two back and two front, carrying the box with its passenger supported by long cane poles on their shoulders. This fine model, made from buffalo horn, has the sliding doors which open onto an accurately rendered interior with its red mattress and cushion, a shelf above for the passengers belongings, and a red stained ivory pelmet. Probably from the workshops of Vizagapatam, circa 1840.
