C1890 Meiji Period Pure Silver Teapots Master-craftsman & Student Rare Nr For Sale
For your consideration is this magnificent Japanese Pure Silver, Ivory Handle and Apple Green Jade Teapots. I had several collectors and antique sale houses look at the pieces and they stated the touch marks date the piece to the Meiji Period, probably around the late 1800s. The experts didn't know for sure, but one thought the larger teapot with ivory handle may have been the work of a master craftsman and the smaller teapot may have been done by an apprentice. The larger teapot has an ivory handle that measures roughly 1 3/4" in length. The Ivory handle is less than 5% of the overall teapot. The top of each teapot has a Green Apple Jade Finial, which I was told are rare types of jade. The larger teapot has an ingraved design of a figural tree branch with flowers and leaves. In this design are two flowers and the center of the flowers have a touch of inlay yellow gold. It is a very small area. I tried to show all the touch marks on both pieces in images 7, 10, 11, 12. Both pieces weigh a total of 302 grams, again based on the touch marks the silver content is consider to be pure silver for that time period. The tiny teapot measures approximately 3" tall by 4 1/4" across the widest points. The larger teapot measures 4" tall by 5" wideacrossthe widest area. This is a very unique set and I feel are unique & pretty rare. If someone can read the other touch marks and would like to inform me, I would be appreciative of the additional information.
