Antique Anglo Indian Silver Mounted Nautilus Shell Cup
REF: 3007 / LA359300
A rare and beautiful ornament, this is an antique Nautilus shell cup with lid, mounted with silver. It was likely made in India, and dates from the late 19th century. It is beautifully made with fine details, the shell has stunning iridescent colours.
Marylebone Antiques has clarified that the Antique Anglo Indian Silver Mounted Nautilus Shell Cup (LA359300) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1890
It appears in mostly very good condition, the shell just has one tiny hole on the back side, see in the images. The hinge of the lid is missing the small pin that holds it together, so the lid just lifts on and off instead of swinging open.
