Antique Indian Silver Filigree Cigarette Case - Taj Mahal & Botanical Specimen (Code 2711)
An early 20th century Indian silver wire filigree cigarette case. The front depicts the Taj Mahal in Agra in the North of country, and it is surrounded by scalloped forms filled with coils. To the reverse is a flower specimen, perhaps the inspiration was taken from the monument which does feature numerous floral carvings and decoration. It has a spring catch to the front and an elasticated strap to the interior. It comes with what appears to be the original soft leather slip case, the flap of which has perhaps been cut off. There appear to be no marks and it tests as a relatively high grade of silver, .800 or better.
It has survived very well considering the age and potential for damage. There is some minor wear, and light marks. The catch isn't particularly secure but does work. It is hand made so some of the original joints and tooling marks are visible.
