  • Carrying the rich cultural heritage, the creations of the artisans of India stand unique in maintaining the luxurious tradition of Bidri in India. This is considered to be a unique kind of art form that defines the hard work and persistency of the artisans.

  • The basic material of Bidri is an alloy of zinc and a small proportion of other non-ferrous metals. The original colour of the alloy is grey, but this turns jet black with the application of special clay or chemical. The dark background with an inlay of silver in intricate patterns is extremely pleasing. The designs, inlaid with pure silver, stand out dramatically against the black background.
  • Prices are in Australian Dollars.
  • Shipping and Freight add $5 within Australia
