Bidriware Pure Silver Inlay Star Diya
Illuminate your home decor with this diya representing 14th century heritage. Resonating with an inky night sky, sparkling with stars all around, Bidriware craft is brought to life by inlaying pure silver in a blackened alloy of zinc and copper. The soil of Bidar is believed to hold special properties and is a crucial element used at the stage of blackening the alloy. An unusual practice that artisans continue to perform is that of tasting the soil before deciding on whether to use it or not.Dimensions
