Vintage Pair Of Brass Jewel Boxes Engraved With Floral Motifs, Dia 18 x Ht 15 cm & Dia 13 x Ht 12 cm

From our Heritage Collection - This Majestic pair of round brass Jewellery / storage boxes are hand crafted from excellent quality brass using the lost wax method of metal casting and engraved with exquisite floral motifs on the entire cover and sides.

Tikamgarh, located somewhere near the edge of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, is where bell metal casting using the lost wax method has been practiced for about three to four centuries.

The process of casting is similar to the Dhokra casting in Betul, as both the crafts take shape with Lost wax casting, a common process used to cast objects in metals. But while the Dhokra of Betul is created with strings of wax on individual pieces, in Tikamgarh, the metal pieces are sculpted in the usual way and moulds are created to replicate the objects.

Handcrafted by the finest artisans in this small town of Tikamgarh, this is a beautiful example of Indian craftsmanship to gift to a loved one or to own.
