DESCRIPTION

Antique 20th Century Indian Solid Silver bowl, repousse' decorated in relief with figures and villages in a landscape. The rim is engraved with an important inscription: "SIALKOT RACES 1910 HORSE STEEPLECHASE WON BY R. WYNDHAM QUINS B. AUS. M. MELODY. PRESENTED BY KHAN ABDUL GAFOOR KHAN".

The decoration depicting Indian villages and farming life is typically from Calcutta, more precisely from Bovanipore, where, among others, the silver manufacturer Dass & Dutt had a prolific workshop operating from the late 19th century until the early 20th. The base is not marked, but acid tested shows a 900+ standard. The bowl dates before 1910.
