The term, Indian Colonial Silver, refers to silver manufactured by European silversmiths working in colonial India and making objects for the benefit of the European settlers living there. Indian Colonial Silver followed the prevalent European style of the day and encompasses a wide range of objects, similar to those which would have been offered in Europe.This fine speciman is very similar to a style that was made in London in the 1780’s.
