From our Indian Subcontinent Collection, a good Kashmiri silver surahi (water flask), 19th century, of compressed globular base with elongated neck and attached stopper secured by linked silver chain, well-decorated with chased vegetal and floral designs typical for Kashmiri silversmithing of this period. Overall a very attractive example with elegant proportions and good presence.

Size and Condition: 9 1/2 inches tall, 5 1/2 inches in diameter at its widest point on base. Excellent condition, no damages, only light wear commensurate with age, use, and handling.
