Elephant "Jhool"

PostAuthor: Shamsher » Thu Jul 23, 2009 9:30 pm

here are some pictures of the Elephant Jhool, these were photographed about 3 years ago.
This is approx. 250 years old and comes with a separate head gear (also in photo)
Must say the elephant would be looking so elegant with all that !!
The threads used in the embossing is pure silver (about 11 Kgs of silver)
The base is Velvet, please admire the craftsman efforts in making this 250 years ago in Kannauj.
Maybe the owner still wants to sell it, would find out.
Enjoy

Wow ! Very nice !!

Thanks for sharing,,,,
A gun by your side is better than police in the neighbourhood.

People who value privileges above principles, soon lose both.
There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore...
And who always will....
