This is a beautiful teardrop shape foot Scrubber brass collectible.
Known as "Vajris", they were made in various shapes of favourite pets and animals by skilled artisans of the royal family. Used mostly by the princely women while bathing to scrub their feet.
Crafted in brass, this scrubber has a teardrop base as the pedestal displaying perforated lattice work, a checkered rough base for scrubbing and finally an exquisite hand crafted and engraved bird as the handle.
Small metal balls called Ghungroos or metal balls are filled inside the base which make a sound when they are used to basically warn off others in the vicinity that women were bathing nearby.
Can be used a good paperweight or actually for scrubbing your pretty feet.
