Description

Antique 19th Century Indian Kutch (Cutch), Bhuj, Gujarat region hand crafted Solid Silver Decanter / Jug / Ewer, extremely heavy gauge, decorated all over with typically Cutch chasing work, distinguished by its closely worked, foliate and floral repoussé design. The body features a tightly scrolled foliate and floral work against a finely tooled background, stopper and handle in the same style.

This is an extraordinarily made Indian Colonial piece, excellent workmanship and very heavy gauge. As often the case the piece is unmarked (acid tested show a 900+ silver standard), but is clearly the product of a prominent Indian Kutch silversmith. It dates to the 1880's.
