History of this Antique Art
Introduced in Rajasthan by Raja Maan singh of Amer, this Persian craft was originally used to create designs on the back of traditional polki jewellery. However, as the craft flourished under Mughal patronage, it became a design of its own, and pervaded into showpieces and tableware.
One of the most complex crafts, the process of Meenakari remains the same as it was 500 years ago! A typical piece passes through the hands of 7 craftsmen before it’s finally ready for showcase.
