Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
In nielloware, an artisan carves a character or pattern into the silver, leaving the figure raised by carving out the "background". They would then use the niello inlay to fill in the background. After being baked in an open fire, the alloy hardens ~ this is sanded smooth and buffed. Finally, a silver artisan would add minute details by hand.
Many of the characters shown in nielloware are characters originally found in the Hindu legend Ramayana. The Thai version is called Ramakien.
I believe the character featured in the cufflinks could be Thepanom - the God of Welcoming, which is different because I usually only see Mekkala(h), the Goddess of Lightening. A unique set with an elegantly gleaming, original patina ~ there is some wear commensurate with them dating back to the 1940's, but they still look great & are certainly ready to be worn and enjoyed!
The cufflinks set will be shipped in a sturdy box via Priority Mail.
International orders may be subject to customs fees.
All sales are final. Many thanks in advance :)
