  embossed silver

 

Thailand

Thai embossed silverwork is made using repoussť and chasing techniques, and frequently represents characters or themes from the Ramakien. This is a side view of a Garuda standing on a naga. The tail, as well as the ornamental flames on each side, are kranok-designs. See also POSTAGE STAMP and TRAVEL PICTURE.
