Antique 19th Century Indian Kutch (Cutch), Bhuj, Gujarat region hand crafted flower shaped silver bowl. Beautiflly decorated with wild animals in a jungle and richly gilded inside. Much of Indian silver has no marking at all, but Kutch silver is distinguished by its closely worked, foliate, repoussé design. The repoussé work was accomplished by creating the form of the piece, filling it with a resin compound, then working the silver from the outside, hammering it into the resin. When the work was complete, the piece was heated until the resin filling melted out, leaving the now-empty piece beautifully decorated. Has been acid tested shows to be 800-900 standard solid silver. Made around 1880's.
