Description


This exceptional antique Chinese Export Silver mug has a tapering cylindrical form.


The surface of this impressive Chinese silver mug is embellished with chased decoration depicting Asian figures in a village setting performing chores and playing musical instruments, incorporating a multitude of indigenous plants.


The decoration to the body incorporates a vacant oval cartouche to the anterior surface.


The upper rim and base of the mug are encompassed with applied moulded borders.


This Chinese export mug is fitted with a C shaped handle modelled in the form of a branch.


This impressive classic mug is double skinned, which is commonplace for its type.


The hallmarks struck to the underside of this fine 19th century Chinese mug include:

Merchant mark: KHC (Khe Cheong, Canton)

Additional marks: Pseudo hallmarks*


* The pseudo hallmarks have no accredited meaning and are a reproduction of English hallmarks; there is no clear reason as to the purpose of these marks. Merchant retailers in Canton often used pseudo hallmarks between 1800-1842, determining the date of this piece as circa 1820. We are grateful to Adrien von Ferscht for his help in identifying this exceptional antique piece.


Condition


This antique 19th century Chinese mug is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The chased decoration is very sharp.

The Chinese hallmarks struck to the underside of the base are very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of antique CES.
