The Royal Bidri Art is in the White House


 Did you know that a tea table created by Bidri artisans was presented to the former President of the U.S. Bill Clinton during his India visit in 1991?
The legs of the table were handcrafted by artists in Bidar, while a glass top was fixed by a Hyderabad-based company. The tea table is still there in a museum in the White House
