DESCRIPTION

Antique 19th Century Chinese Export solid silver tazza, the bowl finely embossed in high relief with chrysanthemum sprays on a mottled ground, the underside embossed in a similar manner with rampant dragons and mythical beasts among chrysanthemums, the baluster stem embellished with scholars and students below a bat wing border, the domed base similarly embellished with rodents among fruiting vines and between Greek key borders. The base is Hallmarked LT - unknown silversmith, judging my the style and the fine quality of work, the piece was probably made by a Cantonese silversmith for the Straights export market (silver tested 900+ standard).
