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.
