Description

Antique 19th Century Indian Solid Silver repousse bowl, impressively massive size, crisp decoration featuring two bands of Hindu deities and avatars. Each side is applied with a cast handle realistically modelled as an elephant's head. This piece is very well made, unusually large and detailed, the style is typically from Madras, not hallmarked as often the case for Indian silver, but the quality suggests that is by a prominent silversmith. Acid tested shows a 900+ standard, year about 1880's.
