This is an excellent example of the fine work of the premier Kutch silversmith Oomersee Mawjee from Bhuj, India during the second half of the nineteenth century. You can find examples of drawings of similar mirrors on page 43 of Vidya Dehejia's "Delight in Design. Indian Silver for the Raj".
The set consists of matching pair of mirror and brush mount, both of which are marked O.M
Both pieces have the traditional Cutch silver designs of scrolling foliate patterns, along with the signature Oomersi Mawji touches of various animals and hunt scenes. The back of the handle shows a hunt scene in which a hunter is kneeling down, ready to attack a boar. The mirror back is bordered by a pair of snakes whose heads are intertwined at the base. The other end of the mirror back features a stag, an image that is repeated on the brush mount. There is a cartouche in the center of the mirror back with a monogram. The rest of the mirror back has a number of other animals prancing around amidst the rich foliage. The front of the mirror continues the rich scrolling foliate pattern seen on the mirror back. The base of the mirror has a small silver mount with the O.M mark.
The brush mount copies the snake border seen on the mirror back and has a pair of stags on opposite ends. Once again there are a number of animals including a lion and a rabbit shown amongst the scrolling foliage. The O.M mark can be found along one of the sides of the brush mount.
The mirror measures 10.5" (27cm) in length and is 4.5" (12cm) at its widest. The brush mount is 7" (18 cm) long and 2" (5cm) wide.
The set weighs 422 gms.
Both pieces are in excellent condition. The beveled mirror shows some signs of wear and tear as can be seen in the pictures.
