Kumkuma Bharani- with Peacock design

I've shared about my collection of Kumkuma Bharanis( Container to store Vermilion) in previous posts:
My collection of Kumkuma Baharanis
Some more Kumkuma Bharanis
Paper Mache Kumkuma Bharanis

One of my friends,  gave me a Kumkuma Bharani-made of paper mache , which she bought from Kashmir. My collection is increased :-)
Here it is:

I have some Kumkuma Bharanis, with Peacock design. The below one is made of Silver, with Peacock shaped handle on it.

Another Peacock shaped Kumkuma Bharani. This is also made of metal, and painted with blue color.
And it can be opened by sliding the upper part. It has 2 compartments, for Haldi( Turmeric powder) and Kumkuma( Vermilion ).
The below one, I like the most. It has very nice design with Kundan attached . This I had bought from a craftsman from Nagpur( Maharastra)
It has a lid and two compartments.
The next one is wooden , in Peacock shape. 
It has sliding lid and two compartments.

                Aren't these worth collecting?
I have completed Kutch work on salwar top, tatted some motifs , enthusiastic  to take you through a craft street many more to share with you in coming posts. 

-Until then
Love , laugh and live the life to the fullest,
