Fine Chased Silver Salver with Green & Blue Enamel
Kashmir, Northern India
diameter: 26.8cm, height of rim: 1.4cm, weight: 594g
This very fine and decorative silver salver is chased with fine coriander flower motifs within a trellised cartouches and enamelled in bright green and blue.
The everted rim is similarly decorated.
Most probably from mid-19th century Kashmir, the enamelling work does bare some resemblance to that undertaken in Lucknow.
A silver flask with related blue and green enamel work is illustrated in Terlinden (1987, p. 115).
The salver is in fine condition; there is very little loss to the enamel.
