AC Silver
Origin: India

Condition


This antique Indian silver trophy is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The embossed and chased decoration is all very sharp.

The body bears a couple of minor dings which cannot be removed due to the nature of the double-skinned construction; these do not detract from the aesthetically pleasing appearance of the piece.

There are no hallmarks as to be expected with such a piece; the date and origin can be determined by the composition and decoration.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique silverware.
