A Southern Indian Brass Lota with chiseled and incised decoration of animated, turbaned figure in roundel repeated around the girth on a ground of saz vine with palmettes above a band of acanthus vine and birds. An inscription is stippled along the everted rim. Good condition - over cleaned, probably belying some greater age. The interior testifies as much with deep, even natural oxidation from use over time. Height: about 5 13/16 inches (14.76 cm)
