Bharata Collector's Edition box Private Reserve- Handcrafted, painted and lacquered by craftsmen from Sawantwadi Lacquerwares in India >> Only 3 available
Made of one of the most expensive woods locally known as Shivan. Better than Mahogany, Pecan, Walnut and other wood types (you will usually see wooden boxes for decks made of either Mahogany, Pecan or Walnut or a combination of these). As an example, if you have outdoor furniture made of Shivan & Mahogany, it is estimated that shivan furniture can last upto 80-90 years but furniture made of mahogany can last not more than 40 years.
Lacquer process increases the durability of the wood, makes it waterproof and attractive to feel and look at.
Handpainted with ancient floral motifs said to be a blend of the traditional Spanish & Portuguese styles with Indian motifs.
Holds 2 decks (decks in the picture only shown for reference) - The box will ship as a standalone box only without the playing card decks.
Ships from Australia worldwide
Initially offered to Kickstarter backers in 2017 and only 16 boxes were made with 3 left in my Private Reserve
