Handcrafted Channapatna Wooden Bird and Cop Whistle Toys / Dolls Combo – 4 pcs
The origin of these toys can be traced to the reign of Tipu Sultan who invited artisans from Persia to train the local artisans in the making of wooden toys. Bavas Miyan is the father of Channapatna Toy, who sacrificed his life for channapatana toys. He adopted Japanese technology for toys making and helped the local artisans improve their art.For nearly two centuries, ivory-wood was the main wood used in the making of these toys, though rosewood and sandalwood were also occasionally used.
