Period: Early 20th century
Region/ Country of origin: India
Condition: Very good condition, see description
Dimensions: 5.5×4.5×23 cm

Bronze "make up" box with lid and peacock figure, for storing kohl.

Kohl (Hindi: "kajal") is a mixture of soot and other ingredients, which is used in the orient for making the eyelids darker and as mascara for the eyelashes. In India women apply it around the eyes as a type of eyeliner.

The preparation of this traditional kajal is a complicated and slow process, which is why it is securely stored in holders like this one. It is believed that all the ingredients that are used to make kajal, such as sandalwood, sap of the Alstonia Scholaris (Manjal Karisilanganni), castor oil and ghee, have medicinal properties, and these are used in Indian therapies, such as ayurveda and siddha.
