Chinese Export Silver Figures At Tea, Game & Music  Teapot      Signed   C1890

IMPORTANT c1890 CHINESE EXPORT SILVER FIGURAL TEAPOT; SCENES IN GARDEN, MAKING TEA; GAMES TABLE & MORE; SIGNED; EXCELLENT CONDITION

We are pleased to offer this museum worthy, c1890 Chinese export silver figural teapot.

From our thirty five year collection of over 300 examples of CES. Including over 50 teapots & entire tea sets. Most acquired in the late 1970s and 1980s.

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 winter 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.

In classic raised globe form.

Adorned with a series of beautifully hand carved scenes of daily Chinese life. Each scene completely distinct from the others.

A pair of elders palying stringed instruments under shade tree, mountains in the distance. Very rare to find this on CES.

Figures at games table, another relaxing in garden.

A seated figure tending to a steaming teapot. The smoke billowing out of the spout. Also, a very rare depiction in Chinese silver.

Cover with faux bamboo stalk and spread leaf finial. Spout and handle bamboo. Hanlde original heat stops.

Finest, life like finish detail throughout. Including the facial detail of the figures. Clearly the work of a Chinese master chaser.

Never monogrammed.

Signed maker and SILVER.

Chinese figural teapot is 9 1/2 inches handle to spout and 6 1/2 tall.

Constructed of thick, heavy guage silver it weighs 15 1/2 (standard) ounces.

In excellent condition. Rich, lustreous silver patina throughout. The beautiful carved scenes of Chinese garden, game, and tea ceremony figures retain their original crisp, vibrant detail.

For the discerning collector of the finest China trade silver. A museum worthy 19th century Chinese export silver figural teapot. Signed.
