Description


This impressive and unusual vintage Indian sterling silver table ornament has been realistically modelled in the form of a decorated Indian elephant.


The surface of the silver is embellished with fine chased decoration detailing the elephant’s features in addition to scrolling leaf and floral motif decorated tapestries.


The elephant is surmounted with an impressive detachable traditional style canopied carriage/howdah.


The howdah features a cast sterling silver dignitary passenger to the centre; these ornaments are secured with a dowel pin to provide a concealed attachment to the elephant.


This impressive Indian silver ornament is further embellished with a detachable cast sterling silver character in the form of a mahout, holding in his sinister hand a removable aṅkuśa; this figure is secured with a second dowel pin.


Each detachable component bears further chased decoration to reproduce the facial features and clothing of the characters and structural lineaments of the carriage.


Origin: India

Condition


This vintage table ornament is an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The chased decoration is very sharp.

The 925 silver purity hallmark struck to the underside of each foot of the elephant are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of vintage silverware.
