Available - Ask about this item

Provenance

height: 7.5cm, combined weight: 127g

This pair of pepper pots cast and chased in a typically Kutch style with scrolling foliage and flowers has been executed in high-grade but unmarked silver.

Lids that are inset in the top of each pot screw out to allow pepper and salt top be poured in. The lids of both are pierced with holes to allow the contents to be sprinkled. Both sit on wide, flared feet.

Both are in a very fine condition and are free of dents or other blemishes.

Pots executed in a similar style are illustrated in Wilkinson (1999, p. 100).
