Chinese Export Silver Foochow Club Trophy Goblet Rare Maker Mh C1875 For Sale

Chinese Export Silver Foochow Club Trophy Goblet     Rare Maker Mh   C1875

RARE c1875 CHINESE EXPORT SILVER FOOCHOW CLUB BAMBOO STEM PRESENTATION GOBLET; SIGNED FOR RARE CANTON SHOP OF MH

We are pleased to offer this rare Chinese export silver Foochow Club billiard presentation goblet.

Signed for Canton maker MH.

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.

Classic form.

The bowl with original gold wash interior.

Centre presentation engraving for Billiard competition at Foochow Club.

The Club founded in 1859. One of five Treaty Ports for the west.

Three notched stalk bamboo flaring at base. Atop life like network of roots on satin surface.

Signed MH and characters. This is a rare shop mark. Chan (2005) notes second quarter 19th century dating. We believe this piece is bit later and suggest c1875.

This Chinese silver Foochow Club presentation goblet is 4 7/8 inches and 4 1/4 standard ounces.

In very fine condition. Rich, lustreous silver patina throughout. The beautiful carved bamboo sprays retain their original crisp, vibrant detail. Original gold interior in fine state. Some surface scuffing as shown.

For the discerning collector of the finest China trade silver. A rare c1875 Chinese silver, maker MH presentation goblet.
