The Kashmiri artisan also produces excellent products of copper-ware consisting mostly of cooking pots and 'samovars' (tea kettle of Russian origin) and sundry articiles for the household or the matelpiece.The copperware of Srinagar is admiringly adapted for electroplating.

The old city abounds with shops where objects of copper line the walls, the floor and even the ceiling made generally for the local market.Craftsmen can often be seen engraving objects of household utility-samovars,bowls,plates and trays.Floral,stylized,geometric,leaf and sometimes calligraphic motifs are engraved or embossed on copper,and occasionally silver,to cover the entire surface with intricate designs which are then oxidized,the better to stand out from the backgroung.The work known as'naqash' determines the price of the object,as does the weight.
