A beautiful antique 19th century vase from Southern India in the Lota shape, known as Tanjore after the region where this kind of silver inlay work was done. The vase is highly decorated with fine silver embossed plaques on a copper body, which is thickly sectioned and very heavy for its size.
The base is slightly convex which seems to be traditional for such pieces from this region, and decorated with a lotus engraving. Condition: Excellent, with no dents or other damage. Two of the small silver dots are missing on the neck but all other silver plaques are intact. The copper has a deep patination, which gives it a reddish colouration. Size: 80mm tall x 90mm diameter.
