Indian Sterling Silver Bengal Scene Scholars Box Grish Chunder Dutt C 1890 For Sale

Indian Sterling Silver Bengal Scene Scholars Box    Grish Chunder Dutt  C 1890

FINEST c1890 INDIAN STERLING SILVER BENGAL VILLAGE SCENE SCHOLARS BOX; SIGNED FOR GRISH, CHUNDER DUTT, CALCUTTA

This is a c1890 Indian sterling silver Bengal scene scholar's box.

Signed for one of the two most important Calcutta shops Grish Chunder, & Dutt.

As you know, there has been an explosive interest in Chinese silver the last year. Prices have appreciated 3-400% or more this year.

Indian colonial silver prices have only now begun to rise. We believe that very shortly Indian silver will experience this same torrential price appreciation. Signed examples from the important Calcutta firms, such as this box, are poised to make the greatest advances.

Classic rectangular design.

Adorned with beautifully hand decorated Bengal village scenes. Calcutta silver is known for this design.

A farmer with tools another leading oxen driven plow. Thatch roof cottages, tall trees and exotic foliage all about. Other figures carrying bushels of hay, or their wares to market.

Wilkinson notes that the firm imported sterling sheets from England, rather than use unpredictable (assayed) domestic silver.

This fine c1890 Calcutta scholar's box is 4 1/2 inches and weighs 5 3/4 standard ounces.

Signed for Girsh Chunder Dutt, listed page 57 in Wilkinson.

Excellent condition. Rich, lustreous sterling patina throughout. Cover closes flush. Stands firm on table or display shelf. The brilliantly carved village decoration retains its original crisp detail.

For the discerning collector of the finest 19th century Indian silver. Focused upon the most important makers in Calcutta. An exceptional c1890 Indian sterling silver Bengal village scene scholars box. From Grish Chunder Dutt.
