Repoussed Silver Beaker
height: 10cm, diameter: 9cm, weight: 237g
This elegant cup or beaker rises from a small flat base, with gently curved sides. It is repoused in high relief with figures in traditional Burmese dress amid trees and an umbrella, and over a wide acanthus leaf border. The background has been finely tooled.
The repousse and engraving work is all of a high quality. The beaker has a good weight and is of good quality silver.
