The Things Used By Abanindranath & Dwarkanath Tagore

Abanindranath Tagore - the paternal uncle of Rabindranath also lived
at the house of Jorasanko Thakur Bari. He was mainly a painter, but
was fond of music too. He used to play esraj. Here the first two pics
are that esraj - Abanindranath used to play.
Here are some pics of things used by Abanindranath - fine Japanese
hand-fans, four pens, silver spoon, silver wax-stand, a beautiful box
made of elephant tusk, another box with nice shellac art-work by a
Chinese artist, two knives for paper cutting one each made of elephant
tusk and sandal wood, 15 'Kutum Katam' made by Abanindranath Tagore.
A mirror is there which was used by the grandfather of Rabindranath -
Dwarkanath Tagore. The frame of this mirror is made of silver.
