Antique Siamese Silver Thabeik Repousse Bowl with Stylised Animals (Code 1809)

  • £9999


Description

A Siamese (modern day Thailand) silver bowl profusely decorated with panels of animals including a rabbit and a snake.  Originally these were used as alms or offering bowls, but they were also made for decoration and export.  Around the rim is a gallery style pattern and the panels are arranged in cartouche form.  To the base are markings in pointillism form, which appear to be Thai.  It is marked for 700% which would relate to the silver % (700 parts per 1000 in this case), and testing does confirm this is about right.  Dates to the late 19th or early 20th century.  A great look and a stylish piece..
