Vase of Chambu Lota form
brass and copper
Ht: 152 mm x Diam: 153 mm
A finely made chambu lota with delicate engraved panels below a band of text, praising Rama, in a devangari script. The mouth of the vessel engraved with lotus leaves.
The whole vessel has been compressed at some time in the past, leaving a series of indentations around the base of the vessel body, and there are one or two dents commensurate with age and use. But this is a fine, early vessel with a nice, fresh finish.
