Antique Chinese/china Solid Silver Bowl With Flower Decoration, Luen Wo Shanghai:
A beautifull Chinese,solid silver bowl,with applied floral decoration,in wonderfull condition,dated around the turn of the 19th/20th century.The condition and quality is superb.I have included two photographs of the chinese hallmarks on the base of the bowl.I am no expert in Chinese script,however after as much research as possible,I believe the marks match those of the maker LUEN WO, who was based in Shanghai,between 1875 and 1925,and whose premisis was on the Nanking road, ( now the Nanjing road) in Shanghai.To see another similar mark attributed to Luen Wo, I can refer you to the marks on a box attributed to Luen Wo As I understand it the firm produced many high quality pieces,also selling jewellry and diamonds. It is a really nice ,well proportioned bowl.
