The Cutch region was renowned for their raised swirl leaf and vine pattern. Found on this rare bird spout teapot. The work taken from Persian architectural and decorative arts.
Wilkinson notes that Cutch silver of the period was "...by far the most sought after of all Indian silver work" (page 67). One reason for this popularity was that the Raos of Cutch had his silver displayed in every possible international exhibition. Beginning in 1851 with the Great Exhibition at the Crystal Palace.

Scrolling acanthus in tiny beaded rim borders.
