Vintage bird on fish brass foot Scrubber handcrafted by artisans from Northern India.
Known as "Vajris", these exquisite brass 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 their feet.
With a oval base shaped like a fish as the pedestal, the scrubber is crafted with perforated lattice work, a checkered rough base for scrubbing and finally a beautifully handcrafted 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 and to basically warn off others in the vicinity that women were bathing nearby.
A collectors item indeed!
