Crafted of ceramic, five knobs are painted in tones of blue and green to depict a school of pretty fish. Training relatives and other local artisans, Khalid Ali presents this set of wall decor from India. Each knob is fitted with a hook of brass for a wonderful coat hook set.
Khalid learned repousse metal work, known as patra, or Indo Napoleon, from his father and uncle. It is one of the most popular Indian arts and Khalid has diligently worked at it for more than 20 years. He continues to grow artistically and has taught many of his family members and other artisans the vast array of skills needed to produce this distinctive form of Indian metalwork.
