A Beautiful 19th Century Kashmiri Silver Teapot
From our Indian Subcontinent Collection, a stunningly beautiful 19th century Khavakend-influenced Kashmiri silver teapot of bulbous teardrop form, finely chased in the rosette pattern with paisley and chinar motifs. This extremely fine teapot sits atop a flat rounded base with an avian-form handle, beak-form spout, and a dome-shaped hinged lid. Though the workmanship of this piece is clearly Kashmiri, the overall aesthetic is heavily influenced by the architectural motifs and artistic iconography of the Khavakend / Kokand / Bukharan region, which is the area of the old Silk Road Trade Routes between India and China.

Size and Condition: 10 1/4 inches high, 6 inches wide at the extremities, weighing approximately 820 grams of high grade silver. Perfect condition, only very light wear from handling.
