additional information

This antique handcrafted silver tray comes from the Kutch region. Kutch silver is characterised by pieces profusely worked in répoussé and chasing much like the work on this tray. The tray features intricate foliate design with a small figurative scene at the centre. The outer circumference of the tray has an openwork foliate design and handles.

The tray is hallmarked “MR” and “BHUJ” within an inset rectangle. The initials MR stand for Raghavji Mawji, a contemporary of Oomerji, a master silversmith from Kutch.
