Antique Malay Silver Bowl, Pierced Rim Malaysia – Circa 1900

Product Description

This unusual and elaborate silver bowl has been constructed using traditional Malay techniques and ornamented with Malay decorative elements. The distinctive, thick, applied and pierced rim is more commonly associated with the shallow dishes known as kerikal, where the scalloped edge helps to create the illusion of an open flower in full bloom. The heavy rim catches the eye, adding to the visual impact and overall presence of the bowl when displayed. Ling Roth discusses the rims in his book, Oriental Silverwork (please refer to the reference below).

This bowl is of circular stepped baluster form and rises from a flared circular foot, decorated with a zigzag strip of biku gunungan (mountain ranges) decoration. The mid-section is ornamented with a band of deeply lobed cavettos embossed with bunga jawa, (lotus tendrils,) decoration and the tapering lower body is ornamented with a band of similar bunga jawa cavettos, alternating with plain cavettos. 

Kerikal were not intended for everyday use, in Malay Istana, (palaces), the kerikal was favoured by court heralds to carry items and bear gifts on formal court and state occasions and it is likely this bowl was also intended for a royal or aristocratic household and used in a very similar way.  It can also be interpreted as resembling an open flower in full bloom with the deeply lobed cavettos enhancing the three-dimensional effect and the credibility of this comparison.
