A very fine koftgari gold damascened iron plate from northern India, 19th century. My photographs do not do justice to the glowing effect of the gold, so thickly applied it stands in slight relief and there is certainly more gold showing in the design than iron. The back is damascened in silver. 19th century.
9 inches (22.9 cm) diameter. Very fine condition with no apparent losses to the gold.
