These beautiful vases are made from sterling silver. They have been decorated with hand-chased flora and scrolling foliage, and have vacant shield cartouches to the front.
This form of decoration is common to the Kutch region of India. The vases have serrated rims with tapered bodies leading down to circular feet.Unfortunately, as is fairly usual with Asian silver, there are no identifying marks. However, I have personally tested the vases and will fully guarantee that they are made from sterling grade silver. I would think they date to the first half of the 20. These vases are in lovely condition and the decorative detail is wonderfully crisp. The only damage to the bodies are a pinhead dint to the lower, plain section of both vases. As you can see from the photos, the edges of both feet have a number of bruises and dints. This has resulted in a slight wobble to both vases.
