it would be interesting to read some detail on the pieces, where/when they were made, acquired etc.

No.2 - Bastar (Madhya Pradesh) tribal metalware, lost wax process ?

No.3 - mother of pearl inlay but the metal work seems East or West African ? I am sure I am way off track...

No. 5 - bidriware ?

Anonymous, your suggestion is good, but these pieces are picked up at random and therefore details are not available.

I suppose you are right Ashvin.
