I wanted to share an example of what I believe is a modern example of an Indian silver bowl. Fineness:
The bowl is stamped "SILVER" on the bottom with no other markings. It is made from relatively thin gauge silver and is surprisingly light for its size (228g, 18.5cm x 16.5cm x 10cm), but with a specific gravity of approximately 10.25-10.3 it is around 90% silver.Location:
The retailer information on the box is as follows "Nitya, Eternal range of silver, M-48, Main Market, Greater Kallash-I New Delhi-48". Although the bowl was retailed in New Delhi, it may have been made elsewhere.Date:
When the bowl arrived it was still in a cellophane type wrapping. It was likely made in the 21st century.
