    This fine and unusual dish of solid silver is the product of Burmese silversmiths who produced items for the colonial market. It has eight sides and a rim that is repoussed in very high relief with sixteen animals such as lions, hares and birds, all against a tooled background.

    The centre of the dish has been engraved with a deer before trees and surrounded by a border of chased foliate scrolling.

    The dish is in very fine condition.
