My daughter and I visited this store in Agra. We loved seeing the techniques, care and skill that were required to make one of these beautiful pieces. I purchased a marvelous black marble elephant with colorful inlays (about 4 inches tall) As we still had a few weeks left in our trip (and he was heavy ! ), we arranged to have him shipped home. He arrived safely - very carefully wrapped -and looks great on my window silll.
One comment ( which the store can not control) is that the shipper may collect duty on behalf of your government. We get walloped in Canada by our shippers and custom duties.! So if you can carry the piece yourself, do so. Marbel Cottage will package it so well you will have no worries.

The owner Mr. Azhar personally gets involved with the customer and delivers exceptional value.
We sought inlay work to plug a few holes developed on our bottochino marble flooring, as replacing the entire flooring would cost us a packet, but for inlay work done by his team on 12 pieces of 3" by 3" bottochino tiles, which saved us a large sum and also the time it would take to replace the entire flooring.
Anyone seeking pics of the work done by him may obtain the same from Mr. Azhar.
Marvellous artists of inlay work in Agra

We first visited this marble shop business in Agra India many years ago & noting that they had quality goods and felt we could do business in good faith, had them post our purchase back to our home in Australia.Shop has moved address in Agra to bigger & better premises. on each visit to Agra since we have purchased Marble table tops & ornaments that have all been freighted back to our home in Australia. Early last year we wanted a special gift, so we contacted Marble Cottage with order. No problem it was freighted to us promptly in the best quality packing. With excellent service at all times. we gladly recommend.
