Jaipur Blue Pottery Tissue Paper Holder with Yellow Flower Design
Of Persian and Mongol heritage, Blue Pottery is a love child of cross-cultural exchange and trade. Travelling across Central Asia, the craft found a home in Jaipur, Rajasthan in the mid-nineteenth century.
Legend has it that Maharaja Sawai Ram II watched his kite-master lose the royal kite to two brothers who had coated their strings with glass-like dust from their pottery practice. He invited them to settle in Jaipur to practice and teach their craft.
The pottery style uses a quartz-based dough, and is fired at low temperatures. The wares are then hand-painted with floral patterns of Persian origin with mineral pigments. They are then glazed and fired revealing intense shades of blue, greens, yellows and browns of the painted pigments. This floral tissue paper holder is encased in a wooden frame.
