Indian Sterling Silver Cobra Tea Set Signed C1890 Cutch Excellent For Sale

Indian Sterling Silver Cobra Tea Set      Signed    C1890   Cutch    Excellent

RARE c1890 INDIAN STERLING SILVER COBRA HANDLE & ELEPHANT TEA SET; GILT INTERIOR; SIGNED; CUTCH REGION OF INDIA

This is an extremely rare c1890 Indian sterling silver cobra handle tea set.

Signed.

From the Cutch region of India. Renowned for their raised swirl leaf and vine pattern. 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. Wilkinson also reports that Cutch silver was usually 92 to 95% pure (page 68).

The service in unique ten panel globe form.

Adorned with beautifully carved leaf and vine displays. Framing raised shield medallion. Rich, satin background.

The teapot with fluted dome cover, topped with standing elephant. The beast with unusually long tusks.

Boldly cast coiled cobra handles. The hundreds of hand carved scales as real.

The teapot with intricately wrapped rattan cover, for heat dissipation. Also, a rare design feature.

The smaller piece with rich gold interior.

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.

This Indian Cutch sterling cobra teapot is 8 1/2 inches handle to spout and 5 1/2 tall and 14 standard ounces. The cream jug is 4 inches and 4 standard ounces and sugar 5 1/4 inches and 6 standard ounces.

Signed with peacock figural signature, See Wilkinson.

Excellent condition. Rich, lustreous silver patina throughout. The brilliantly carved floral work retain their original crisp, sharp detail. Stands firm on table. The cream jug and sugar with rarely seen gilt interior.

For the discerning collector of the finest Indian silver. Focused upon Cutch examples in unique form. An exceptional late19th century Indian sterling silver cobra handle tea set. Signed.
