Description

A rare hand painted miniature from Victorian India, depicting a bullock cart and driver with hills in the background, set into a silver mount and dating to around 1860.

Indian miniature painting of this period is usually concentrated on portraits or tourist scenes such as the taj Mahal so it is unusual to see a more rural image such as this set into a brooch. It is beautifully painted with good detail still visible on both the bullocks and the cart, which was a common form of transport for both people and goods, as it still is today. The cart appears to have thatched sides and roof and is the smaller two wheeled variety.

It is not hallmarked but has been tested as 800 or higher silver.
