Fine+rare Antique Indo Persian Kashmiri Islamic Solid Silver Cheroot Case C1885:
Rare and Fine Quality Victorian era Kashmiri Solid Silver Cheroot Case c1885.
Beautiful Collectors treasure skilfully hand raised from
solid silver. It features very intricate all over hand chased scrolling and meandering naturalistic forms in an Indo Persian style, quickly identifiable as being typical of late Victorian Kashmiri silversmiths.
In excellent, original condition and very hard to find now. There are no dents, dings or repairs and the case closes properly, tightly and securely all around as it should. It has a blank, never used cartouche.
Beautifully proportioned at 81mm x 55mm x 19mm, it weighs a creditable 67g.
Superb example of antique Indian silver and interesting aspect of fine Islamic art.
A beautiful piece for the serious collector.
