This vintage Indian jali stencil in heavily oxidised brass has led a life devoted to decoration. Used in Hindu households during many festivals and celebrations, the perforations in this humble tool allow finely ground coloured rice, sand or flour to pass through, creating beautiful, transient patterns, or rangoli, on floor tiles or the ground. 

Traditionally, patterns are passed down through the generations - could this one become part of your family of treasures?
