J Manikrai & Sons '...Presumably this firm is the continuation of the silversmith Manik Rai. Manik Rai was a silversmith who fled the Kutch area following the 'Chhapaniyo Dukal', the great famine that struck the Kutch area in 1899-1900, and then settled in Karachi. He was noted as an exhibitor in the Lahore Exhibition of 1909.' Ref and last image credit: www.925-1000.com
