Maker unknown, 1913

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.
