The basic continuity is not achieved at the sacrifice of flexibility of forms and designs. On the other hand, the popular standard of taste has been maintained throughout because of the scope for such transformation and change. This continuity is, however, not like that of a stagnant pool. So long as the craftsman functioned and he set his personal seal on the things he produced, there was no risk of any violent change in their appeal nor was there any sudden break with the past. Art was conditioned by the function of the craft object, which in turn guided the life movement of the people in any given surrounding.

To help such designers (and others interested in the subject) this modest publication is attempted. In application of designs, the artists of old seldom lost their sense of proportion and balance and the main theme of the work was never lost sight of in the exuberance of decoration. Degeneration followed as a later phenomenon. Indian art in general, no doubt, provides adequate material for the study of decorative arts. But it is in the actual articles of daily use or other ancillary objects that the designs and motifs are so well preserved and handed down from generation to generation.
