Specimen Notes:
  • This gourd, intricately carved and decorated with silver, resembles a pipe-stem. A pipe attachment would have been inserted in the central opening in the body of the gourd. It was most likely donated by the India Museum to Kew in 1879, when the South Kensington-based museum closed its doors.
