Description: An ususual and beautiful antique Indian scallop shell dish, we are informed this is a rare design for Indian silver, and probably designed for colonial tastes, as it replicates a 18th century design made famous by Paul De Lamerie. The dish is the traditional scallop (or escallop) shape, with 10 ribs, each rib has repoussed (embossed) decoration, this includes numerous animals (elephant, antelopes, lions, dogs, hares and birds) interspersed with trees, flowers and foliage. The dish has 3 cast feet, lion claw under capped leaf scrolls, and rests evenly on a table. The dish is medium in size, so suitable for serving a variety of snacks. The quality is superb, clearly made by a master craftsman, it would have taken many hours to produce. As is usual for Indian silver of this period, no hallmarks are present. We welcome any comments or information on this wonderful dish.
