Description


This magnificent antique Chinese Export Silver (CES) salver has a circular shaped form.


The centre of the salver is plain and embellished with the contemporary engraved crest depicting a dog/talbot grasping in the mouth an arrow, all above the motto 'Festina Lente' - make haste slowly*.


The raised swept, plateaued border is ornamented with exceptional pierced and applied interlacing cherry blossom branches accented with applied floral designs to the shaped scrolling rim.


This impressive silver salver is supported by three impressive, large bracket style feet.


The underside of this impressive salver includes:

Maker's mark: CW (Cum Wo**)

Character mark: Untraced


Such large Chinese Export Silver examples are becomingly increasingly difficult to locate and are rare to the market.


* This Latin motto derives from the Classical Greek 'σπεῦδε βραδέως' and can often be rerendered in English to 'more haste, less speed'


** This retailing silversmith had many old fashioned values and housed items for their quality and superb attention to detail. Cum Wo dealt from Queen's Road, a quayside waterfront establishment which was a direct trade station from the ships.
