This striking basket is inspired by the craze for Chinoiserie that swept 18th Century high society in France. Bird of Paradise fly among curling vines and exotic flowers on a red and black background with gold detailing. The bin is finished in a lacquer-look paint effect. The sumptuous colours and design make this a good choice for an interior design scheme with oriental influences, and also works beautifully with rich fabrics, mahoganies, oaks and other dark woods.

Dimensions : 20 x 20 x 28 cm (W,D,H) 

Finish & Base Material: Hand-painted on Metal.

Matching Tissue Box available  

 

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.
