Lot Essay

The chased foliage of the present and subsequent lot suggests their production in Kashmir. Typical of Kashmiri silver is naturalistic chasing which incorporates plants of the region's lush environment. This punch service and tea and coffee set make use of the "Rosette" pattern of Kashmir, which derives from the flowers and leaves of the coriander plant. For examples of silver in this pattern, see Wynyard R. T. Wilkinson, Silver from the Indian Sub-Continent and Burma During Ninety Years of British Rule, 1999, a teaset, p. 108, no. 173 and a teapot, p. 111, no. 179.
