DESCRIPTION

Antique 19th Century Indian Kutch (Cutch), Bhuj, Gujarat region hand crafted Solid Silver Bowl, decorated all-over with exceptional Cutch chasing work, pierced wavy border. Cutch silver is distinguished by its closely worked, foliate, repoussé design. The body features a tightly scrolled foliate and floral work and against a finely tooled background, vacant shield to one side. Very well made Indian Colonial piece, as often the case the piece is unmarked (acid tested show a 900+ silver standard), but is clearly the product of a good Indian silversmith. It dates to the1880's.

CONDITION

General wear and small restoration to the inside of the bowl.
