Vintage Brass Peacock Kum Kum Box With 6 Compartments

Crafted by artisans in Uttar Pradesh, India, this exclusive vintage 6 compartment Kum Kum box is hand casted in solid brass with beautiful peacocks atop each compartment.

Such ornate containers were used for storing colourful herbal powders such as makeup & vermilion referring to the red pigment used by married Indian women and to store "Bindis" - large colourful dots of cloth for their forehead.

Each compartment opens by unscrewing the central peacock. 

A great conversation starter, this unique vintage piece will enhance any space in your home.
