A Very Pretty Enameled Silver Box from Rajasthan
From our Indian Subcontinent Collection, a truly delightful little enameled silver box from Jaipur, Rajasthan (India), featuring a very attractively painted elephant in regal attire, executed in turquoise blue against a purplish blue background, with floral motifs in green and gold around the borders and on the sides, all executed upon high grade silver.

There is a plethora of arts and crafts throughout the Rajasthan region, and the different cities there tend to have a few art forms in particular that they each excel at. In Jaipur, the so-called "Pink City," they excel at these enamel on silver creations, and we bought several of the best examples we could find.

Size and condition: 6 inches wide, 4 inches deep, 1 inch tall. Perfect condition.
