£895.00Price

Rare pair of silver fish servers made by eminent Indian silver smith Peter ORR and Sons. 

Made in Madras (Chennai) 1880. 

Superbly decorated in the rich “ Swami “ style with heavy silver repousse handles depicting various gods and goddesses of the Hindu Pantheon. 

The fork is also engraved with a few swirls and acid dipped to achieve a matt finish to contrast with the sparkling bright handles. 

The server is decorated with a superbly engraved depiction of Matsya, avatar of Vishnu. On the reserve is a depiction of another avatar of Vishnu.

The engraving is top quality as is the repousse work - as is the weight and quality. 

An excellent example of the truly breathtaking quality of PETER ORR’S workmanship.

In excellent original and virtually unused condition. 

Marked PETER ORR & SON’S MADRAS on both.
