The US President will be accompanied by his wife and US First Lady Melania Trump, and other family members during his visit to the country on February 24 and 25.
“It’s a special design. We served ex-President Barack Obama also when he visited,” manufacturer Arun Pabuwal told news agency ANI. The ‘Trump Collection’ of gold and silver plated tableware will be used by the president and his family members during their visit to New Delhi.
The manufacturer said the family set tableware was conceptualised and created within a short period of two weeks using a wide variety of non-ferrous metals. “It has been coated with a thick layer of pure of gold and silver as final finish,” he told news agency IANS.
Pabuwal is also the CEO of Arun’s Group of Companies, an internationally renowned designer and manufacturer of metal ware.
