Showpiece in striking pure silver wire inlay craft on blackened metal alloy of zinc and copper
Give an edge to your living space with the striking pure silver wire inlay craft of Bidriware. Originally from Bidar, this metal handicraft is believed to be from the 14th century rule era of the Bahamani Sultans. Using blackened metal alloy of zinc and copper, the Bidri artisans craft the pieces with minute detailing from etching designs freehand on metal surface to engraving the design. After fine wire of silver is hammered into these grooves, the surface is smoothened and blackened with special soil, smmonium chloride & water mix and given the finishing touch.
