Vintage parrot design foot Scrubber handcrafted by artisans from Northern India.
Known as "Vajris", these exquisite foot scrubbers were made in various shapes of favourite pets and animals by skilled artisans of the royal family and used mostly by the princely women while bathing to scrub the feet.
With a teardrop base as the pedestal, the scrubber is crafted with perforated lattice work, a checkered rough base for scrubbing and finally a beautifully hand crafted parrot as the handle.
Small metal balls called Ghungroos or metal balls are filled inside the base which make a sound when they are used and to basically warn off others in the vicinity that women were bathing nearby.
A collectors item indeed!
