A quick snapshot for you. More later. From the Indian Silver for the Raj exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. This goes to Susan's Black and White Wednesdays hosted this week by Chez Cayenne.


  1. Oh my what a beautiful one, though i am wondering how difficult it would be to shine it! I collected a few much worked silverware from my Egypt days and absolutely love the workmanship.
    And your posting it today when some of us are celebrating the gokul ashtami, this picture is so fitting to Balgopal taming Kalinga!
