Colonial Indian Fine, Engraved Silver Goblet

Lucknow, India

diameter: 7.1cm, height: 14.9cm, weight: 204g

Available - Enquire

Provenance

UK art market

This elegant goblet, produced for the colonial market in India, is of high-grade silver. It stands on a domed foot, has a baluster stem and an elongated bowl with a reinforced rim.

It is chased very finely on the foot and the bowl with scrolling grapes and vine motifs against a gently tooled ground.

There is an elaborate leafy border of palmettes just below the rim.

The goblet does not carry a maker’s mark but the motifs and style of engraving are associated with some types of silver produced in colonial Lucknow.

The goblet is in excellent condition. It sits flatly without rocking.
