Spotted at an antique shop in Pampanga.

A "gallinera" bench. Philippines, 1880s. Popular during the Spanish colonial period, benches like these were in the foyer of homes. Here visitors waited to see the home owner, stashing their fighting cocks in the space under the seat.

Windows made of capiz shells were originally chosen because it was cheaper to make windows of capiz than glass during the Spanish Colonial period of the Philippines.  They continued to be made, however, thanks to their ability to allow enough light through and their strength in holding up to typhoons.
