Repousse Silver Dish

19th century

 

This finely chased and repoussed silver shallow dish or plate demonstrates the remarkable skills of 19th century Ceylonese silversmiths.

It is finely worked all over with typically Ceylonese floral and foliage motifs. The outside border shows a series of stylised kala masks copiously worked with further foliage and floral motifs.
