Sadeli work

The noted centre of this complex technique was Shiraz, in Persia, and travelled some time in the Eighteenth century to the Bombay Presidency. Somewhat similar to 'Tunbridge Ware', geometrically pre-shaped rods were arranged in a form: bound together, then sliced accurately and laid down on the carcase. Normally small items were produced, and much, much more rarely, tables and chairs.
