DESCRIPTION

Antique 19th Century Indian Monumental solid silver pair of large figures, modelled as Rajasthani King and Queen, profusely decorated with scrolling foliage on a matted ground and standing on octagonal decorative bases. The pair are exceptionally large and impressive, the design is inspired by the Islamic Mughal period decoration and suggests that the statues are made in Northern India (Rajasthan). Grape laden vines similar in design to those appearing here were a typical feature of Mughal architectural design, although the most important influence in this type of decoration derives from the tradition in Mughal paintings and textiles that would have been worn by the couple on the wedding day.
