Indian Sterling Silver Bengal Village Vase Dass & Dutt C1890 Rare For Sale

Indian Sterling Silver Bengal Village Vase      Dass & Dutt    C1890      Rare

FINEST c1890 INDIAN STERLING SILVER BENGAL VILLAGE SCENE TRUMPET VASE; SIGNED FOR DASS & DUTT, CALCUTTA

This is a c1890 Indian sterling silver trumpet vase.

Signed for one of the two most important Calcutta shops Dass & 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 are poised to make the greatest advances.

Vase in classic pear shape. Elegant gently scalloped ruffled rim.

Adorned with beautifully hand decorated Bengal village scenes. Displayed in two separate friezes.

Calcutta silver is known for this design.

Farmer carrying twin satchels balanced atop pope across shoulder. Woman in long rope with goods atop her head. Thatch roof cottages, tall shade trees and exotic foliage all about.

Below, a farmer working his crops, while another women carries bushel balanced atop head.

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

This fine Calcutta trumpet vase is 3 /12 inches across and 5 (standard) ounces.

Signed for Dass & Dutt as shown. The identical hallmark illustrated page 63 in Wilkinson.

Excellent condition. Rich, lustreous sterling patina throughout. 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 vase. From Dass & Dutt .
