Oomersi Mawjee Tea Service (OM Bhuj, c.1870)
This collection shown here comprises most of the important regional styles of Indian silversmithing. Most Indian silver is likely to have a theme of hunting, of native flora and fauna, of scenes from village life, or, in the case of “Swami silver,” of different Hindu gods and goddesses. Each region had its own style, subject preferences, and forms.
