A classic but very effective design: a simple peacock feather set against a plain background of Midnight Blue, Charcoal or Hunter Green. The peacock is a symbol of immortality, and this is a timeless design with hints of oriental style - but the block background colour, classic shape and understated gold trim keep it contemporary. It's suitable for both traditional rooms and more modern design schemes. Finished in vintage crackled effect paint on metal.

Dimensions : 25 x 25 x 30 cm (W, D, H)

Finish & Base Material: Hand-painted on Metal.

 

Master painters in Rajasthan - Our tôle collection is finely hand-painted by a small family business in Rajasthan, the heart of craft in India. The workshop started out in the early 1900s as a domestic metal supplier of larger buckets and containers, as industrialisation swept through the family were forced to adapt their business.

They turned to using the local pool of talented fine painters, who have over the genersations honed their skills from masters painters who once decorated the opulent palaces of this royal state.

The designs have hints of decadence times with influences of East and West, the use of gold leaf and details such as brass feet, handles and filigree trims make unique pieces which will for sure go on to be family heirlooms of the future.
