Original Black Lacquer Pot from Rajasthan - 19thC

A4667

Lacquer boxes are used for storing jewellery or bindi (the red powder that Indian ladies apply to the forehead). Lacquering is done by the craftsman on a hand powered lathe. The wooden pot is spun and a lac stick is pressed against the pot. As the pot spins friction softens the lac which coats the surface of the wood. Quite intricate designs can be created by the craftsman using different techniques. Good quality lacquer pots are becoming increasingly difficult to find
