How and where to style Indian papier mâché trinket pots?
The decorative trinket box would be a pretty addition to any dressing table – stash rings, bangles or watches inside. It would also add a decorative, hand-crafted touch to a shelfie display or any still-life collection of objects on a mantlepiece, in a niche or on a coffee table.
The art of hand-painting trinket boxes in this style originally came from the Kashmir region. The glossy black base of this dome-topped, vintage trinket box has no back stamp, so is difficult to date or place but is nevertheless a charming piece for interiors modern & traditional.
