Synopsis: Metalwork has always been to India what ceramics are to China. During the fabled Mughal age, the craftsmen of the Sultans and Rajahs of India produced an astonishing variety of objects in gold and gold enamel, silver, brass, bronze, gilt copper and the Deccani alloy known as bidri. The finest of these are among the most striking and poetic utilitarian wares ever made, in addition to being of the most outstanding technical refinement.
This, the first book on the metalwork of Mughal India, illustrates all the great surviving objects, the majority of which have never been published before and are unknown to the western connoisseur.

Book Description Alexandria Press, London, England, 1997. Hardcover. Condition: VG/VG. Gold cloth/color DJ. 368 pp. 117 color, 527 bw plates. This is the first book on the metalwork of Mughal India and illustrates all the great surviving objects, the majority which have never been published before and are unknown to the Western connoisseur. Lavishly illustrated. Order, beauty, richness, restraint and sensuousness describe the essence of the Indian metalwork reproduced in this volume.

Book Description U.S.A.: Laurence King, 1997. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 9 5/8" x 12 1/4" Golden cloth with gilt lettering. Crown and foot of spine bumped. Top back corner slightly curved. One section starting to pull apart from binding. DJ shows some light cloudiness. Order, beauty, richness, restraint, and sensuousness describe the essence of these works of art, whose greatness derives from the meeting of two worlds. Such mingling of Hindu and Muslim sensibilities gave Mughal art the strength to the Mughal emperors. 645 illustrations, 117 in color. During the Mughal age, the craftsmen of India produced an astonishing variety of objects in gold and gold enamel, silver, brass, bronze, gilt copper and the Deccani also known as bidri. With the Islamic invasion of India, India would look to the Middle East, and especially Iran, for standards in its literary culture and visual arts. Yet, while India interpreted, she seldom imitated; and sometimes her interpretations surpassed her models. We, at Coalesce Bookstore, thank our customers and supporters, acknowledging that what we do would not be possible were it not for each of you. Books over 2.2 lbs require additional shipping cost outside US, approximately $40USD ($25USD for Canada). Seller Inventory # RS.ZEMA.goldindia.1997
