This is a plush and sturdy waste paper basket with a two-tone russet and gold effect hand-painted on metal, finished with luxurious gold trim. The gallery edge detail and circular carrying handles give it the feel of a vintage scuttle, and the rich, dark tones will compliment antique furniture, mahoganies and oriental dark wood styles, or modern interiors with natural wood finishes. Tucked next to a desk in a study or library, it's a bin that slips into the background of a richly furnished room, becoming part of the furniture.
24 x 18 x 29 cm (W, D, H)

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.
