An organic round, petite footed plate, with an outline of a mother and child (in the modernist Bengal school of Art style). Handcrafted, with silver wire inlay, by master craftsmen in Bidar, Southern India, using time-honored techniques handed down over centuries.
Enjoy it as an accent piece on a coffee/side table or a credenza. As wall art- alone or grouped together with other plates from this collection. As a bedside jewelry catchall. As a base for t-light. Or simply as an art object that serves to remind that the best things in life aren't always fleeting.
Dimensions: approximately 5.75" in diameter.
Weight: approximately 360 gms.
Care: A light rub with silver polish (like Silvo) will help lift any tarnish on the silver wire inlay. As will rubbing the surface with a soft white pencil eraser/rubber. The luster of the black metal surface can be restored by wiping down with coconut oil.
