DESCRIPTION

Antique 19th Century Indian Kutch (Cutch) solid silver cup, inverted shaped, impressively heavy gauge and exceptionally fine workmanship, very closely worked, dipicting hunting scenes, surrounded by foliate and floral repoussé design on a matted ground. Mounted with an unusual scroll handle. The style is typically Cutch, the quality and gauge closely resemble the pieces by the greatest Indian silversmith operating in the late 19th Century: Oomersii Mawji. As often the case for Indian silver the silver is not Hallmarked, but acid tested shows a 900+ silver standard, it dates to the 1870's.
