Oomersi Mawji was a very famous Indian silversmith who worked in BHUJ, which is in Kutch, Gujarat (India). He was born in Gujarat and was of Indian descent. His mark is included in this directory as he was active during British domination of India and his works may be classified as "English Colonial Silver". His work is not hallmarked (in the English way) but has a high percentage of silver. His own work is marked OM and he started to be well known around 1860. He used a special process and a brief description is given in V&A Museum website. He was known worldwide and will have sold through outlets in Calcutta and Bombay. His work became very expensive and the designs had to be simplified and his sons continued this. Certainly his family’s work was sold through Liberty of London and there is a page in a catalogue giving examples.
Bhuj, Gujarat (India, north of Mumbai) c. 1890
