Enamelled Indian Tray


Fine Chased Silver Salver with Green & Blue Enamel

Kashmir, Northern India

circa 1850

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.
