Chinese Export Silver Dragon Teapot Hammered Surfaces C1890 Luen Hing For Sale

Chinese Export Silver Dragon Teapot    Hammered Surfaces     C1890     Luen Hing

FINE CHINESE EXPORT SILVER DRAGON ON HAMMERED SURFACES TEAPOT; LUEN HING; WEIGHS 21 OUNCES; EXCELLENT

We are pleased to offer this c1890 Chinese export silver dragon teapot.

Signed for well listed Luen Hing.

Trade silver prices have exploded in the past year. As evidenced by Skinners Boston sales in Fall 2010. There a pair of 4 1/4 inches vases for $2000. Later in 2011 a common, damaged 20 ounce CES tea set sold for $6800 USD at Halls Gallery in the UK. A slightly larger, damaged, mismatched set sold at Christie's London this past winter for $7200.

As trade silver prices soar, we have been unwilling to sell the best pieces of our personal collection.

Until this past year when a tiny, twenty one ounce CES tea service, with damaged enamel work sold for 35,000 GBP plus premium ($70,000 USD) at Bonhams UK.

Classic slender oval form.

Beautifully hand chased four claw Chinese dragons to both sides.

The front dragon in rarely seen posture. Facing over and looking skyward.

The dragons with massive head carved in high relief. Razor tip fangs tendrils flaring all about. The long convulsing body comprised of hundreds of individually carved scales.

Set against rich all over hand hammered surfaces. The thousands of individually punched hammer marks shimmer brilliantly in the natural light.

The cover topped with panel and urn finial, with a heat stop. Also rare to have a heat stop to cover, though useful design feature when brewing tea. Never monogrammed.

This c1890 Chinese dragon teapot is 10 inches handle to spout.

Exceptionally thick heavy guage solid silver weighs 21 1/2 (standard) ounces.

Hallmarked as shown.

In excellent condition. Rich, lustreous silver patina throughout. The beautiful carved dragon retains its original detail. Handle secure and with original heat stops.

We happily combine items when shipping, saving you costs. We ship twice weekly, usually US Postal Priority. Fully insured for domestic packages, and air parcel overseas. We charge a bit more than actual cost for custom size boxes, shipping materials and to pay for professional packing.

As such, returning an item because we failed to mention the tiniest bit of wear, or barely discernible flaw is not acceptable. Nor do we accept returns based on buyer's remorse.

We received favorable notice in the March 12th, 2006 New York Times. Page 8, Business Section, in a well written article on silver collecting. Copy furnished upon request.

From our personal collection, an elegant mid 19th century coin silver basket, from John and Edward Moore, of Tiffany fame. Illustrated in the cover article of May/June 2008 Silver Magazine, page 27.

Enjoy....and good fortune in your offerding.
