The shape of our very own shield emblem. This shield was the shape of my school badge which was enamel & very old-fashioned, it encompasses the ideas of belonging to a society or club of like-minded curious people, where there is no membership fee & everyone is invited. It is the perfect size for applying your makeup or for shaving or would make a sweet display on a wall in your child's bedroom. It is edged in zinc and bevelled, just hang it on the wall with one of our giant tinker nails!
Finish: mirror & zinc
Measurements: 25cm high x 23cm wide x 0.5cm deep.
Our products are hand forged using honest & humble materials. Their imperfections, patinas and variations are intrinsic to the underlying importance of craftsmanship within India.
If the product is made from brass, it will patina & age over time. This ever-changing characteristic makes the object even more beautiful.
If the product is blackened steel, Linseed oil or Penetrol can be used to keep it rich & dark in colour. This will also prevent & remove any rust which may build up over time in coastal or wet environments. Dot a rag with Penetrol & massage into the steel for 3-5 minutes & leave to dry. We recommend a few coats over the life of the product.
If the product is crafted with raw leather, it is designed to age & darken over time. We love when the story of the user & their environment is imprinted on our products. Oxalic acid can be used to wipe down raw leather to remove any dark stains or spills. A little goes a long way!
