SOLD - Chinese Export Silver Footed Dish - Antique Circa 1890

Description


This antique Chinese Export Silver (CES) footed dish has a circular shaped form.


The plain circular well of the dish is embellished with impressive engraved decoration displaying bamboo stalks emerging from a distant mountain top and accented with a bird in flight.


The plain rounded border is ornamented with a fine and impressive shaped band of pierced, engraved and chased decoration depicting four iconic Chinese dragons amidst clouds to the rim.


The decoration to the rim incorporates a circular vacant cartouche to either side.


This antique dish is supported by three fine and impressive dragon style feet.


The hallmarks to the underside of this impressive footed dish include:

Maker’s mark: W.H. (Wang Hing & Company)

Silver quality/purity mark: 90* (900/1000)

Character mark: Untraced


* The purity mark uses a reversed G in place of the numeral 9


Condition


This antique footed dish is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.

There is a slight loss to the decoration of the dragon's whiskers/beard to one foot, this does detract from the aesthetically pleasing appearance of the piece and it has been priced accordingly.

The chased decoration is very sharp and the engraved decoration is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Asian silverware.


Dimensions


Diameter 16.7cm/6.6"
