Flowers surround two elephants who trumpet a greeting on a sumptuous coffer. Handcrafted of mango wood, this jewelry box by Khalid Ali is covered in embossed brass bathed in nickel. He creates six velvet-lined compartments and adds a mirror in the lid.
Khalid learned repousse metal work, known as patra, or Indo Napoleon, from his father and uncle. It is one of the most popular Indian arts and Khalid has diligently worked at it for more than 20 years. He continues to grow artistically and has taught many of his family members and other artisans the vast array of skills needed to produce this distinctive form of Indian metalwork.
Khalid Ali has received 2 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1000 and the most recent for $1800.
I like dealing with Novica.But this particular came damaged or unfinished.The mirror and surrounding paddings came loose and mirror was cracked.It also had a very heavy odor to it. Not very happy with this purchase
