Jeypore Enamels
Jeypore Enamels
Description
About the book

The art of enamelling on metal is successfully practiced in many parts of India, but it is universally acknowledged that the best work on gold is produced at Jeypore, in Rajputana. The colours employed rival the tints of the rainbow in purity and brilliancy, and they are laid on the gold by the Jeypore artists with such exquisite taste that there is never a want of harmony; even when jewels are also used they serve but to enhance the beauty of the enamel.

All who see the gold enamel work of Jeypore admire the beautiful designs in which it is carried out. It is with the view of placing some of these designs on record, and affording everyone the opportunity of seeing them, that this collection has been made.

The book is peerless for its illustrations and includes twenty-eight full page colored plates containing one hundred and twenty designs. The book published first in 1886, is now a collector's item.

Preface

All who see the gold enamel work of Jeypore admire the beautiful designs in which it is carried out. It is with the view of placing some of these designs on record, and affording the public the opportunity of seeing them, that this collection has been made.

The Designs have been drawn by one of the best Jeypore artists, by name Ram Bux, son of Esur, and the only crdit I can claim is in having set him to work and paid him for his trouble.

The letterpress has been written by Surgeon-major T.H. Hendley, Agency Surgeon at Jeypore, to whom I gladly take this opportunity of retuning thanks for all his help - in all matters so readily given - especially in this book.

If this work is considered deserving of any credit or notice it is to Dr. Hendley and to Ram Bux that it is due.

Introduction

The art of enamelling on metal is successfully practiced in many parts of India, but it is universally acknowledged that the best work on gold is produced at Jeypore, in Rajputana. The colours employed rival the tints of the rainbow in purity and brilliancy, and they are laid on the gold by the Jeypore artists with such exquisite taste that there is never a want of harmony; even when jewels are also used they serve but to enhance the beauty of the enamel.

The enamels of Europe and of Persia are poor and lusterless in comparison with those of Jeypore, and in none of them is the fiery red, for which the latter is so remarkable, at all approached.

At Jeypore enamelling is done on gold, silver and copper, but it is in works in the most precious metal alone that it has secured the pre-eminence.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
