Indian Sterling Silver Bengal Village Cocktail Shaker Signed C1890 For Sale

Indian Sterling Silver Bengal Village Cocktail Shaker     Signed     C1890

FINEST c1890 INDIAN STERLING SILVER BENGAL VILLAGE SCENE COCKTAIL SHAKER; FROM THE CALCUTTA REGION; WEIGHS 23 OUNCES; EXCELLENT

This is a c1890 Indian sterling silver village decorated cocktail shaker. A very rare form in Indian silver.

An unusually well crafted example of Calcutta silver. The hand chased detail to the village scene as fine or finer than that of Duss & Datt.

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 are poised to make the greatest advances.

Classic tapering cylindrical form.

Both shoulder cover and top beaker cover screw on tightly. Rare. In that most often covers slip on and are badly fit.

Adorned with beautifully hand decorated Bengal hunt and village scene. Calcutta silver known for this design.

Woman in shawl kneeling over noon day meal. A farmer feeding an elephant with palm leaf. A second farmer with stick, appears to be shooing away another elephant from planted fields . A very rare design feature.

The layered shield medallion sits atop twin palm tree supports.

Thatch roof dwellings, palm tress and exotic foliage. Rich satin background.

Most Calcutta silver used imported sterling sheets from England rather than unpredictable (assayed) domestic silver.

This fine Calcutta sterling silver village scene cocktail shaker is 9 inches.

Exceptionally thick heavy guage sterling construction weighs 23 1/2 (standard) ounces.

Sterling Silver hallmarked.

Excellent condition. Rich, lustreous sterling patina throughout. Stands firm on table or display shelf. The brilliantly carved village decoration retains its original crisp detail. Both top and shoulder cover screw on perfectly.

For the discerning collector of the finest 19th century Indian silver. An exceptional c1890 Indian sterling silver Bengal village scene cocktail shaker. Signed.
