Exquisite Heart Shape Silver Finish Brass Jewellery Box. L 14 x W 11 x Ht 11 cm

From our Heritage Collection - This Majestic heart shaped Jewellery / storage box is hand crafted from bell metal with a silver finish engraved with exquisite motifs on the entire cover and sides and a round handle on the cover.

Tikamgarh, located somewhere near the edge of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, is where bell metal casting has been practiced for about three to four centuries. From canons and war weapons for kings and soldiers, to bullock carts and cattle bells for the farmer, to even real gold temple decorations, metal smiths here crafted almost every object of need and desire.

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.
