This beautiful little bedside table is delicately hand-painted and finished in a pale pink wash, which is almost like a marbling effect, and an antique crackle glaze. It is vintage-inspired with a gorgeous soft foliage and blossom design. Hand-painted on three sides and the top, where a protective and removable round-cornered glass snuggly lays, the cabinet includes a small drawer with a dainty brass knob and a door with two shelves inside. The attention to detail is lovely and the inside is also painted in a pink and white wash. The manufacturer of this fine painted furniture employs three hundred people in total, both men and women. Seventy-five of whom are based at the factory in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India and one hundred are sub-contractors. One hundred and twenty-five employees are cottage workers who work on a seasonal basis. They normally live in remote villages where employment is scarce, so the supplier is providing much needed support to very poor areas enabling them to earn a living and also run their homes. The factory provides tea twice a day and workers residing in the factory are given accommodation and cooking facilities. Apart from statutory wages all staff have medical insurance and interest free loans are available to all factory employees and contracted workers. The factory boasts a culture of hard-working talented individuals with freedom of speech and thought. Add this exquisite and dreamy item for instant charm and country-style comfort in a bedroom or beautiful quirkiness to a bathroom.
