Indian Sterling Silver Elephant & Bird Handle Coffee Pot Kashmir C1880 For Sale

Indian Sterling Silver Elephant & Bird Handle Coffee Pot    Kashmir    C1880

RARE c1880 INDIAN STERLING SILVER LEPHANT & BIRD HANDLE COFFEE POT; KASHMIR REGION; 18 OUNCES; EXCELLENT CONDITION

This is an exceptionally rare c1880 Indian sterling silver animal handle coffee pot.

From the Kashmir region of India. Second only to Cutch in design and workmanship.

Much, much less silver was crafted in Kashmir. Hence, it is more rarely seen.

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.

In classic tapering cylindrical form.

Twisted rope band followed by wide arched stepped base.

Adorned with brilliantly hand chased series of swirling leaf and flower filled medallions. Set amidst streaming vine and individually carved flower heads.

This is the shawl pattern from Kashmir. Wilkinson illustrates several identical examples page 104-106. The design is taken from designs on the world renowned shawls of Kashmir.

The domed cover topped with smooth finish lotus blossom finial. The smooth surface provides dramatic contrast with the heavily chased body and handle.

Long slender tapering spout, reaching almost to the very base of the coffee. Allows additional cooling of your favorite blend.

Boldly cast elephant head upper terminal. The beast's trunk swept back. The long handle tail rolled into curl at end, finished with bird's head to bottom.

Never monogrammed

Wilkinson also notes that Kashmir silver ranges 90-98% pure (page 106).

This Kashmiri elephant and bird handle coffee pot is 7 inches handle to spout.

Unusually thick, heavy guage silver it weighs 18 1/2 (standard) ounces.

Unsigned. As is the case with most all Kashmiri silver.

Excellent condition. Rich, lustreous sterling patina throughout. Stands firm on table or display shelf. The brilliantly carved streaming leaf, vine and floral decoration retains its original crisp detail. Cover bit tight, and loose on hinge.

For the discerning collector of the finest 19th century Indian silver. Focused upon the most rare animal forms. An exceptional c1880 Indian sterling silver Kashmiri elephant and bird handle coffee pot. Excellent condition.
