Additional Information

Marble painting, an art that originated in the 16th century, has been used to enhance the charm of many a functional household object. With intricate marble painting in vivid red, emerald green and royal gold, this tray from Rajasthan is a perfect example of marble painting in everyday use. 5.5 x 9 inches in dimension, the tray holds two bowls which are 3 inches wide. The lids have attractive gold bulbs, which makes them easy to use. For decorative purposes only this hand-painted marble home decor item is tradition personified.

Kundan work or the setting of precious stones in gold is a rare art form and has been pursued in Rajasthan from the time of the Rajput kings and queens. Dholpur near Bharatpur is a famous center of art work on marble. The craftsmen use their chisel like a brush and paint on marble with a passion that comes from an intense love and pride for their work.
