The term “Indian silver” usually refers to silverware produced during the colonial period in India. The British East India Company was established in India as early as 1615. Subsequently, from the 17th Century, some beautiful silver items were made in the British colonies. However, the demand for silver produced in India now mainly dates to the latter half of the 19th Century and is mostly focussed on items made in the British colonies.

The later part of the 19th Century was very lucrative for both local Indian and British silversmiths. They set up workshops and outlets in the colony’s major cities to cater for demand. Indeed, some of the silversmiths remained in business even after India achieved independence from the British Raj in 1947. However, Indian silver varies greatly in quality and design. Likewise, each region of India had its own distinctive style of decoration. Furthermore, given the lack of hallmarks on Indian silver, it is the style that often determines where apiece is from.
