Vintage Hand Chased Indian Gilt Silver Plate Barrel Form Beer Mug (32 ounce)

48.00

A nice large size barrel form beer mug. This vintage mug is probably made in India, though it may be Sri Lanka. This large tankard has a pleaseing hand etched floral design and a nice wide handle.

I would conservatively date it at 1970. The cup was raised on a lathe and shows a kernel mark at the bottom. Stamped on the bottom EPNS. All handmade and has evident tool marks. Inside is lightly gilded and the cup has a custom made box that latches shut securely.

Dimensions of this cup are about 5" tall x 4.5" wide at the widest. No need to double fist. It holds 32 ounces (4 cups). A handsome example of the engraving work of this area. Condition is excellent with a fine finish. There are minor scratches and spots on the cup and there is one small but not very noticeable ding (indicated by finger on inside and out. Slight loss to playing as shown. More visible on the inside). Overall antique condition is suitable for a gift.
