Product Description :
This tall and impressive vase is of solid silver and was made in colonial India. The chasing is influenced by the silversmithing that was undertaken in Kutch but it is not strictly Kutch work. Possibly it was done in Bombay and possibly for a local Parsee client. It stands on a wide ring foot; with a wide, flattened, globular body, a baluster-form neck and a wide mouth. Its body is decorated with elegant gadroons and chased with floral and leafy scrolls.
