Once the king Maharaja Sawai Madho Sing II had to visit England for Edward VII’s coronation in the year of 1901. He was finicky about committing religious sin by consuming the English water, he specially made two huge sterling silver vessels to carry the water of Ganges to drink on his trip to England.
They were made from 14000 melted silver coins without soldering. They are officially recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s largest sterling silver vessels. Each vessel was made with capacity of 4000 litres and weighing 340 kilograms (750 lb).
