Framing your reflection with flowers, the exquisitely fashioned Indian mirror is a perfect stand alone piece in a hallway. Alternatively, position an inlay mirror in a living room or bedroom, with another piece of Indian inlay furniture and create instant cohesion in your oriental décor. The soft colours in the mosaic mirror go well with grey walls or muted tones in a colour scheme.
How bone inlay furniture is made
Camel bone is harvested harmlessly and hand planed into flat pieces, which are then carved using knives by the skilled workers, who learn their handicrafts from masters and in academies.
These ornate pieces are then carefully laid onto finely crafted, hard wood furniture with glue and the gaps are filled with a resin made from a composite material, which is hand dyed, to create a colour stain. The piece is sanded smooth and level for a seamless finish and careful attention is paid to the border detail at the edges, so that each piece of bone inlay is painstakingly aligned for a neat finish.
