Antique Chinese Export Solid Silver Dolls House Miniature Sofa Or Settee C. 1890:
Superb Antique Chinese Export Solid Silver Dolls House Miniature Settee or Sofa circa 1890
This Antique Chinese Miniature Settee or Sofa measuresapproximately 3 5/8 inches or 92 mm across its length from one side to the other by just over 1 1/4 inches or 33 mm across its width from back to front and it stands just under 2 1/4 inches or 56 mm tall to the top of its back.
This miniature sofa or settee is made from solid silver in a rectangular shape that stands on four shaped legs and it has been wonderfully filigree decorated with oriental style foliage across its seat, the lower rail, arms and back panels have all been silver lattice decorated and the miniature settee or sofa has Not been engraved with a previous owners initials or familymonogram, the underside of the seat has an applied silver panel that has been impressed with an unknown Chinese export silversmith or makers mark that the Chinese silver mark all photographed below, I estimate that this superb dolls house miniature sofa or settee was made circa 1880 - 1900.
Thecondition isused and Excellent for its age.
The miniature sofa or settee hasNo Dents, No Splits, No Cracks and No Repairs that I can find, the sofa stands upright, the definition and decoration is very crisp, the Chinese silver and makers marks are still clearly legible although as the miniature sofa or settee is a used antique it does have a small hole in the filigree decoration on the seat and it has some extremely minor surface marks and wear from use, it has thepatina of age that is to be expected and a gentleclean would enhance it greatly.PersonallyI think that this antique Chinese miniature sofa or settee wouldmake a superb addition to any dolls house or cabinet collection and that it looks fantastic considering that it's around 120 or so yearsold.
This Delightful Antique Chinese Export Solid Silver Filigree &Lattice Decorated Dolls House Miniature Settee or Sofa circa 1890 is one of several pieces of antique and collectable silver that I have also listed.
