An antique repousse silver bowl with three different scenes depicted in deep relief:
two male figures, one on horseback, hunting a male lion
a rhinoceros charging a rearing tethered horse
two adult kangaroos facing each other with a tiny baby peaking out of the mother’s pouch.
According to an expert on East Indian silver, the inclusion of the non-native kangaroos is a very unusual feature and may indicate that this was a one-of-a-kind custom order - note their bushy tails - the silversmith who made this item had never seen a kangaroo.

The entire outer surface (expect for the base and rim) is decorated with the typical Lucknow palm trees plus foliage, hillocks and stippling. The maker’s mark, a sixteen-petal rosette decorates the base. There is also a very fine script mark on the base - it reads either “aloe = wx” or “xm = soro”. The bowl measures about 2 3/8" in height - the opening has a diameter of about 4 3/8" (inside measurement) and it is about 5 3/4" wide. It weighs slightly less than 7.5 troy ozs on my non-certified scale. The actual silver fineness is unknown.

Condition: There are some shallow dents on the base within the rosette (no wobble - it sits flat) as well as some fine scratches and tiny nicks on the rims. There are tiny patches of tarnish still present and a short horizontal fissure near the base (surface only - appears to be “as made”). This unusual item displays beautifully.
