The shapes of these ewers illustrate the gradual stylistic transition from an Iranian form characterized by a thin neck to a plumper neck seen in India from the 18th century onwards, as described by Mark Zebrowski (Mark Zebrowski, Gold, Silver & Bronze from Mughal India, London, 1997, pl. 223 and 234-236).
