My family is very happy to see the beautiful black marble table in my dinning room. We personally want to thank all those who created the beautiful table.
We thank you for the excellent packing and shipping. The service has been excellent. As I had mentioned in my call to you, we have ordered for dining chairs, which will take 3 weeks to deliver. I shall send you photographs of it once I get the chairs. Lot of people here already have appreciated it.

We truly cherish our purchase and proudly display it in our home. It resides in our front entry where everyone who visits us can see it. We will be having professional lighting installed soon to really highlight this masterpiece. It was a bit difficult to photograph due to its location but I have attached 3 views to give you an idea. I hope you can save each image to your computer and then use it as you wish. Thank you and we wish you much success as you continue to promote the work of your skilled masters.

I hope this finds you and your family healthy and safe. We are fine here in the USA. I hand wrote you a note to let you know that the lovely elephant we bought arrived safely. The letter was returned and had been stamped “mail service suspended”. We named the elephant Taj and he looks lovely at our entry. We loved India. The stop at your factory was delightful and watching the demonstration was great. Sure wish I had asked for a sample piece of the stone he [Artist] was cutting as it is difficult to explain how intricate each piece is. So glad you are keeping this art form alive. Our elephant is enjoyed everyday. Stay safe.

I am sending you a photo of the beautiful marble table that you made for us. Very soon, we will be doing a small remodel to this area of our kitchen in order to improve the lighting. I was very surprised how much the touch or feel of the table as we eat or sit at the table is an enjoyable feature. I had mostly thought of it as a visual experience – now I realize the table is very tactile. Perhaps circumstances will create another opportunity for us to visit India again. In the meantime, our table greets us every time we enter our kitchen and reminds us of the joy of our time in Agra and in India. We are very pleased and thank you very much!

Thank you for the beautiful marble. It made it home safely and looks lovely in my living room as art and will work well on the lazy susan when I entertain. Here are photos of it with both a candle behind and a light. This is a nice memory of my trip to India.

Sorry for the long delay for sending you photos of my lovely trivet. It’s been a beautiful addition to our house. I haven’t had a chance to use it as a trivet, but have really enjoyed it as a beautiful decoration. It is a unique memento of our fantastic trip to India and brings us joyful memories!

Thank you for your note. We are indeed absolutely delighted with our Buddha. It stands on our dining room table and I have attached a photo of my husband and myself with it. We will surely come visit you again when we are next in Agra.

A few days ago we received your black marble table with teak wood stand. It will forever be yours on loan to us for safe keeping and family memories. The love of the craftsman is surely living within our home and the future homes of our children’s children. The table is perfect and the stand is exactly as you promised. We cannot thank-you enough and we look forward to meeting you again when we are in Agra.

The elephant arrived in perfect condition and we love it. We placed it in the entryway to our house – please note the sideways pictures. Also, I want to complement your packaging people. I have never received a better wrapped package in my life. They are amazing. Thank all of you so much for your professionalism and perfectionism. Akbar is a marvelous company!

Sorry it took me so long to send you the picture of my table yet since receiving the new base. Although I am not able to use it as I originally intended (I am afraid it would not support the weight of the glass top), it does look very nice. Thank you for your cooperation and for making it happen.

We received the pieces yesterday and I wasted no time in unpacking them and proudly displaying your beautiful work – the 19”piece is on our kitchen table and the 12” x 21” Tiger table top is in our family room. Photos attached. We use these rooms all the time so we will be reminded of our wonderful journey to India all the time.

I just wanted to send some photos of the beautiful marble extension table that we have now received and set up. It arrived safely securely packed and is truly beautiful and such an incredible work of art. Because we live in the mountains, the table is perfect with our views of trees and peaks from our windows. Your artisans and engineers outdid themselves constructing the metal extension mechanism for our 120” extension table. The table will seat 14 comfortably when extended and when we slide the extensions underneath, we can easily seat 10. Thank you and your team for all the hard work and care that went into making this for us and for staying in constant touch with us during the process. We will enjoy this table for years to come and it will be enjoyed and appreciated long after we are gone!

The first thing to say is that we were highly impressed with the quality and care of the packaging, it was outstanding, we have never seen such thoughtful and intelligent design and it surely reflects the quality and detail inherent in your art. The pitcher has arrive in perfect condition, and we are perfectly satisfied with how it looks. I am leaving to my wife to place it but I intend to have a small stand made for it, (my son does fine woodworking and I will have him turn such a plinth). We shall also find a suitable LED battery powered light to place inside because as you pointed out a light inside gleams through the translucent marble and enhances the inlaid semi-precious designs. We had to cut short our Indian vacation about halfway through because of the virus but we intend to return as soon as the self imposed crisis is over and hope to revisit your emporium again.

Dear Friends at Akbar, An interesting fact for YOU!:It took us TWO years to get this gorgeous piece hung by someone qualified to handle an exquisite piece of art, such as this! Some considered it, but quickly backed away- thankfully! Sadly, the lovely frame you sent us to hang the piece was too enormous for the spot, adding weight, which was a big issue.Finally, we found someone who had experience with hanging stone and contact with an obscure Canadian company that could design a custom-made LED dimmable light pad.The european-glass hardware for hanging is the kind used for constructing sturdy thick glass balconies. I held my breath as they drilled the holes in my stone art piece to insert the bolts for wall hanging!As you can see, it was a VERY SUCCESSFUL project! The outcome was even beyond the hopes of the contractor. Daily it brings us immense pleasure, flooding our minds with wonderful memories of Agra and the generational artisanal skill of the Taj Mahal builders.Gratefully, with heartfelt wishes for wellness of all!

Attached is a photo of me (Lisa Nicotra) with our lovely Akbar International elephant.  It gives us great joy seeing the elephant in our home of Minneapolis, MN and reminds us of our memorable trip to Agra, India. Thank you for doing what you do and keeping this most important tradition alive for the rest of the world to enjoy.
