Antique 19th Century Burmese Maung Po Kin Solid Silver Bowl, Rangoon, circa 1890

About

Antique late-19th century exceptionally rare Burmese, Myanmar solid silver Thabeik bowl, repousse' decorated in high relief depicting battle scenes and traditional scenes from the Burmese mythology, detailed figures set against a chiseled matted background in landscape. The top chased with scrolling bands and base decorated with a thick band of betel leaves. The quality of the bowl is simply outstanding and very crisp. Base stamped with the makers mark M.P.K for Maung Po Kin, Rangoon. (see Wilkinson's Indian silver, page 36). It is very rare to find such pieces with makers marks, especially in English letters as many of the silversmiths were illiterate, this would suggest this bowl was either made on commission for a British colonialist living in Burma or was destined to be used at an exhibition. At the beginning of the 20th century, Maung Po Kin became one of the most celebrated Burmese silversmith winning the silver medal for his work in the metal wares section at the Delhi exhibition 1902-1903, only coming second to Maung Yin Maung (see Indian Arts at Delhi 1903, page 41). Measures: Height 15.5cm Width 25cm Weight: 1440g.
