This early 19th century Tibetan cabinet is painted with flowers and foliage that revealed original deep colors as we painstakingly removed layers of soot from the surface. A combination of the high Himalayan climate and soot from yak butter lamps has the fortunate result of protecting colors on painted Tibetan furniture. The inside of this piece still retains the wonderful exotic odor of burning lamps...

A BIRD FORM OIL LAMP, INDIA, 18TH CENTURY.

The bird, possibly a parakeet, forms the oil reservoir of a small suspended oil lamp. Similar birds are illustrated in Mark Zebrowski’s “Gold, Silver and Bronze from Mughal India”, some dating as early as the 16th century. This seems to be a very old example also and so a possible dating to 17th to 18th century seems cautious but fair.

4.1/4 inches long...

The large silver frame of a shape reminiscent of a radiator grille from a Rolls Royce motorcar, engine-turned decoration and with the enamelled crest of the Indian Princely State of Orcha. The frame is of English manufacture and was hallmarked in Birmingham in 1931. It is very likely that this was commissioned by Maharaja Vir Singh II, perhaps one of a number that became gifts to visiting luminaries...

A beautifully crafted piece of jewelry from Rajasthan in North India, this sterling silver necklace has finely embossed images of 44 peacocks and is itself shaped to resemble a fanned peacock tail. From the late 19th century, the necklace is made of 92.5 percent silver and weighs 240 grams. Judging by its weight, regal design and motif of the peacock, national bird of India, this was a ceremonial piece and most likely was worn by a man. Eight vertical plates with peacocks and flowers in graduat...

These small crests are divided into sets of four and separated by four larger polished crests in the shape of a four-leaf-clover, creating a nice interplay of shine an...

Two peacocks perch smartly atop this early 20th century silver comb from the state of Rajasthan in North India. The handle is a reservoir for scented oil dispensed in small amounts as the comb is drawn through the hair. A cap between the peacocks screws out to allow the handle cavity to be filled. Etchings, each centered with a different flower and surrounded by foliage, cover both sides of the handle. The peacocks, Hindu symbol of immortality, give this unusual piece the regal Rajasthani look. ...

A FINE SILVER EWER, INDIA OR INDO PERSIAN, 19TH CENTURY

This superbly crafted silver jug was possibly used for serving tea or coffee. It seems to be similar to the work produced in northern India. Although unmarked it appears to be made from good quality silver and will polish well, I have left it unpolished so as to show the detailed work better.

Approximately 7.5/8 inches ( 19.4 cm ) high. 680 grams. There are two small repairs on one of the bulbous petal shapes in the lower part ...

A synthesis of strong Mughal influence with the Mewar Rajasthani school of painting, this early 20th century miniature depicts a woman dressed in a filmy costume sitting on a balcony playing a string instrument. The peacock chair suggests a royal courtyard, which overlooks water flanked by white palaces with a green hill beyond. Small flowers and delicate Urdu calligraphy border the top and bottom of the scene. The work is done in natural pigments on an Urdu book page. The scene and its inner bo...
