Brass pandan

On display

Floral motifs appear in much of the decorative art of north India and the Deccan in the Mughal period. This lidded box for pan (a chewing-quid of betel leaf and areca nut, popular throughout India) has engraved flowering plants with stylised ‘Chinese’ clouds and scrollwork, which would originally have been filled with red or green lac inlays.
