Handcrafted purse/hand mirror made from blue pottery ceramic tile. Blue Pottery is widely recognized as a traditional craft of Jaipur, though it is Turko-Persian in origin. The name 'blue pottery' comes from the eye-catching blue dye used to color the pottery. Jaipur blue pottery, made out of a similar frit material to Egyptian faience, is glazed and low-fired. No clay is used: the 'dough' for the pottery is prepared by mixing quartz stone powder, powdered glass, Multani Mitti (Fuller's Earth), borax, gum and water. It is the only pottery in the world that does not use clay.
Gently wipe with a clean dry cloth when needed. (keep away from water and other liquid substances) Being fired at very low temperature makes them fragile.
Slight difference in color from the visible product image is possible. Read more.
