Koftgari – Indian Inlay

Joseph Cohen Silver box, koftgari, shield 2246 Views

Koftgari is the Indian form of damascening which closely resembles the damascening found in Persia and Syria.
The inlay process begins after the piece is moulded and fully formed. The intended design is engraved on the base metal. Fine gold or silver wire is then hammered into the grooves.
