The massive exports of Rajasthani metal craft all over the world are a proof of the extremely refined level of craftsmanship which exists in this land of valour. A crazy combination indeed – the metal which defined valour and wars in Rajasthan also defined of peace and art in the state! Metal craft is centuries old and it grew under royal patronage. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries enamelling became a part of metal craft and a new dimension was thus added to the craft. Today, bright layers of paint over cast iron adorn metal craft, giving them years and years of longevity.
