`Sanchi', the latest brand of silverware, manufactured by the Minerals and Metals Trading Corporation comes with the assurance of purity. The articles are available at the Poompuhar showroom on Anna Salai.
ADDING A special sparkle to Chennai's festive shopping scenario is the sterling silver counter, which opened at Poompuhar recently.
For lovers of silverware the Minerals and Metals Trading Corporation (MMTC) Ltd., a Government of India undertaking, presents silver tableware and giftware in elegant shapes and concepts through its premium brand `Sanchi'.
And true to its name, the sterling silver comes with a guaranteed purity of 92.5 per cent!
The MMTC is India's largest importer of bullion as well as the country's biggest trade enterprise, and its range of silverware is an attempt to add value to silver, and make silverware affordable.
From gracious Georgian silver tea and coffee sets to `thalis', Ganesha and `Om' pendants to `mark the moment' - the Sanchi Collection says it all with a sense of fluid grace.
The tea sets are especially elegant and crafted with a delicate touch. Silver spoons in sets of six, filigree napkin holders and pretty candle stands, add a touch of gracious living to the dining table. And there is more. Silver `thalis' with `katoris', etched dessert bowls, sets of glasses and highly polished frosted water jugs make perfect statements of elegance.
The collection also includes trays in oval or rectangular shapes, which can double as `chapati' and cocktail snack servers. The `puja thalis' with `kamandal' and `lota', icons of Ganesha, Lakshmi and Parvati as well as gold and silver medallions, depicting a range of gods and goddesses, look resplendent.
The visiting card holders, bud vases and exclusive hip flasks make elegant give-aways.
The articles are made by the MMTC at its New Delhi workshop and are pre-tested at its laboratory for guaranteed purity.
A whole new line of designer silverware is on the cards, giving the quality conscious Chennai-ites a perfect venue to shop for pure silver articles. The Poompuhar showroom is located at 108, Anna Salai.
