In Lucknow, the silversmiths combine embossing, engraving and openwork on sheet silver to craft traditional utensils, bridal footwear and paandaans. Mughal-style silver ornaments are intricate, but light. Owing to the strong Islamic influence most products are highly decorated with repousse, depicting hunting scenes and floral and fish motifs. The sheet is flipped and the embossed design is made crisper by chasing it from the front. Some parts of the design are encrusted by soldering.
