Khalid Ali revisits the past with a jewelry box with the grace and charisma of an antique. It is carved of mango wood and painted before receiving a luxurious assortment of glass stones. These multicolored details surround delicately embossed images executed on nickel-plated brass. The box opens to reveal a velvet-lined interior, a mirror and a removable tray.
About the Artist: "My father started a small workshop in 1959 where he crafted artistic furniture using brass foil embossing. He has been doing that for ages until I took over about a decade ago. Our designs are basically inspired from the ancient Mughal style. But today we incorporate modern motifs into the ancient technique and style. Though I've been in this field a long time, my ardent desire is to continue to grow. Right now I have about ten artisans assisting me, most of whom are relatives I have trained."
The Khalid Ali Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Khalid Ali in India. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
