Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Private UK collection.

    A related biscuit box dated to 1890 and a sketch which closely resembles the present lot are published in Vidya Dehejia et al., Delight in Design: Indian Silver for the Raj, 2008, p. 133, no. 42. The marks "Oomarsee Baroda" also appear on a salver in the British Museum dated to the early 20th Century (accession no. 2011,3014.82) and were probably used by Oomersi Mawji's son working for the Gaekwar in Baroda in the early 20th Century.
