Silver Repoussed Rosewater Sprinkler
Cutch, India, circa 1880
This unmarked rosewater sprinkler is repoussed, cast and chased very much in the Cutch style. The pierced head is in the shape of a flower. The stem and body are decorated with scrolling flowers and foliage typical of Cutch silver work. There is a small blank armorial cartouche to one side.
Condition is commensurate with age. The body is free of significant dents; the neck rises at a sleight angle however.
similar examples are illustrated in Wilkinson W.,
Indian Silver 1858-1947
, 1999, p. 8.
