This book is one in a series illustrating the collections of the Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum, City Palace Jaipur. Others in the series are Festivals at the Jaipur Court by Vibhuti Sachdev, and Arms and Armour at the Jaipur Court by Robert Elgood. This is the first comprehensive overview of the court textiles of the Kachhwaha Rajput court of Amber-Jaipur, which were among the finest ever produced in India. While a few thousand historical pieces survive in the Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum in the City Palace, Jaipur, many now reside in art collections across the world. Over 200 full colour images showcase some of the most remarkable court textiles remaining in Jaipur and preserved elsewhere.
