A Remarkable Indian or East Asian offering Bowl on Stand, late 19th or early 20th century.

The bowl is cast and then finished by fine chisel work and engraving, all against an intricate punched ground. It features a myriad of hunters and animals, the trees seem full of game. On the hilly horizon can be seen various dwellings and pavilions, tiny birds in the sky. The base is an arrangement of three elephant heads supporting an acanthus cup on which sits the offering bowl.

I have never owned a piece of such high quality, I assume it must has been made for a wealthy family or for presentation.

I am restricted in posting only 12 photographs on Trocadero. I have produced three files of a multitude of photographs and have hosted them online at another site, please email for the addresses. My email address can be found on this page.

The height is 28.5cm. The diameter of the bowl is 26.7cm. The weight of the bowl is 1.7kg and the weight of the base is 3.17kg.

Please study the photographs.
