Chinese Export Silver Cigarette Box - Antique Circa 1900

£1,295.00

A fine and impressive antique Chinese Export Silver cigarette box; an addition to our diverse silver box collection

SKU W9027

This fine antique Chinese Export Silver (CES) cigarette box has a plain rectangular form with rounded corners.


The surface of the body of the box is plain with an applied moulded border to the rim.


The subtly domed hinged cover of the box is ornamented with contemporary engraved monograph initials in addition to a moulded border to the rim.


The hallmarks struck to the underside of this impressive box include:

Maker's mark: WH (Wang Hing & Company)

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

Character mark: Untraced


NOTE: The majority of such boxes have a wood lining to the interior to provide strength, due to a poor gauge of silver; a sign of quality when examples are unlined and of solid silver.

This antique cigarette box is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in excellent condition.

The engraved initials have wear in keeping with age.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the box are all very clear.


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