Antique Repousse Indian Silver Christening Mug - Kenneth


A stunning christening mug for Kenneth. This antique mug is probably made in India (i.e. Kutch), though it may be Sri Lanka. This small tankard has 5 panels with various scenes including deer and elephant, rearing elephant, tigers, and a pair of lions.

I would conservatively date it at 1930. The silver content of this item is believed to be fairly low (40% or so) and it probably has a high concentration of copper giving it a warm rosy look. It is an unusual metal and does not appear to be plated. All handmade and has evident hammer marks.

Dimensions of this cup are about 3 1/8" tall x 4" wide at the widest. Holds 8 ounces and weighs 120 grams. A handsome example of the repousse work of this area. Condition is excellent with a fine finish. There are minor scratches and spots on the bottom where the piece was probably acid tested previously. Overall antique condition is suitable for a gift.
