The mixture of influences on such examples can be explained by the international draw of the Mughal courts in the North of India: "Metal wares of great sophistication were made all over the subcontinent in a range of alloys and techniques. Craftsmen from all over Hindustan, and from Iran where outstanding metalwork was created in a vast range of types, would have found ready employment at the Mughal court" (ibid., p.187).
