Khalid Ali revisits the past with a jewelry box with the grace and charisma of an antique. It is carved of mango wood and painted before receiving a luxurious assortment of glass stones. These multicolored details surround delicately embossed images executed on nickel-plated brass. The box opens to reveal a velvet-lined interior, a mirror and a removable tray.
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.
