NW Indian Punjab octagonal Hoshiapur inlaid table ( 51 x 51 cm)

£ 520.00

51 x 51 cm = 20 inches square

The Hoshiapur / Hoshiarpur workshops in Northern Punjab served the Anglo Indian market circa 1900 and possibly employed Kashmiri artisans. Sold throughout stations and cantonments and likely outlets in close-by Lahore and Delhi. Doubtless the clever folding design was intended for easy shipment. The styling in hardwood such as Padouk and was based on earlier Mysore products in a combination of Moorish and Indian taste. Such tables came in four or five sizes invariably inlaid with either brass, copper, bone and ebony in combinations.
This table is inlaid with both brass and copper as well as ebony and other hardwood.
