This exquisite vintage vermillon | sindhoor holder is handcrafted by skilled artisans from Madhya Pradesh in excellent quality brass with a rich patina decorated with beautiful peacocks atop each compartment and an ornate design on both sides.
A pin with a chain is attached to the sindhoor holder and used for putting the sindhoor by women.
Such ornate containers were part of the ladies jewellery in royal households during the mid century traditionally used for storing colourful herbal powders mostly vermilion which is the red pigment / powder used by married Indian women in the parting of the hair starring from the forehead everyday.
A great conversation starter and a collectors item.
