This is a beautiful pair of handcrafted boxes or chests with the earthy yet vibrant colours of Ochre, burgundy, deep green and white displaying lovely Indian floral motifs and design on the cover, the sides and the front of the boxes.
Handcrafted from soft Mango-wood and hand painted with natural dyes and colours, this exquisite pair of boxes are ideal for keeping ornaments, necklaces, rings and such jewellery items and can be locked for safekeeping.
Inspired by the art of applying Henna, the box has been hand painted by the artisans of Jodhpur, Rajasthan using only natural dyes and "colors which are piped through a fine hand held nozzle known as the "Cone painting art" to give the boxes their texture similar to when henna is applied onto the body.
The traditional designs and motifs reflect the beauty and tradition of the state which can be seen in the intricate designs and earthy vibrant colours. The inside of the boxes are painted solid black.
The box is deliberately given a distress for that vintage-look and the hinges and the lock are made of wrought iron and painted.
