SIGNED AND INSCRIBED PHOTOGRAPH OF MAHARAJA SAYAJIRAO OF BARODA IN INDIAN SILVER PRESENTATION FRAME
Maker unknown, 1913
25 x 17-1/2 inches (63.5 x 44.5 cm)
Celebrating its centenary this year, this remarkable survivor of the days of the Raj commemorates the establishment of a new chain of libraries in Baroda dedicated to translating literary masterpieces of the western world into Hindustani. The framed portrait of the Gaikwad of Baroda, Sayajirao III (1863-1939) was presented to Yale professor Dr. William Allanson Borden (1853-1931) who spent much of his life and career in India establishing library systems, and has descended through friends of the family of Dr. Borden. The exceptionally intricate silver frame is patterned with flora and fauna of India and capped by the Maharaja's crest.
