An unusual cracked glaze eggshell effect is hand painted onto this weighty iron waste paper basket in a choice of colours - pale pistachio, duck-egg blue, eau de nil and coral. The pretty shades, tapered design and gold trim are reminiscent of Parisian apartment style - think high windows, sun and a hint of spring blossom. This subtle waste paper basket would compliment pastels, creams and whites in a bedroom or living room.
Dimensions: 25 x 25 x 30 cm (W, D, H)
Finish & Base Material: Hand painted on Metal
Matching tissue box covers are available for the Plain Tapered waste paper bins.
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.
