Description


This exceptional Indian silver jug has a cylindrical bulbous shaped form to a spreading collet style foot.


The body of the jug is embellished with fine and impressive profuse chased scrolling leaf and floral decoration, all on a matte background; a style typically found in Cutch (Kutch) silver work from the second half of the nineteenth century.


The lower bulbous portion of the body is ornamented with rope twist bordered arched panels depicting further alternating Kutch style decoration.


This Indian silver water jug is further encompassed with a leaf decorated border to the body, upper rim and circular foot.


The jug is fitted with a push fit domed cover, embellished with further arched decoration reflecting that of the bulbous portion of the body.


The cover is surmounted with a cast silver leaf decorated finial.


This antique jug is fitted with a fine and impressive cast handle modelled in the form of a snake, replicating the coiling features to the upper and lower terminals.


Due to the medial size of this jug it could be used for a multitude of liquids including: water, cordial, beer and wine.
