Fine 19c Chinese Export Silver Cigarette Card Case By 'yw' Gold Gilt Interior For Sale

Fine 19c Chinese Export Silver Cigarette Card Case By 'yw' Gold Gilt Interior

I am pleased to present this late 19c Chinese export silver cigarette case in the curved form for ones inside pocket and has the makers initials of YW and the chop mark as well. This nice case was produced in China sometime during the last quarter of the 19c and I had no luck in finding the sliversmith's initials in any literature so it may have been a small shop or perhaps a worker of one of the large shops. The one side of the case shows a central badge cartouche with an inscription and date of when it was given but many times these were made years before and were inscribed at a later date when it was given as a gift, the badge is surrounded with figures sitting at a table playing the game of 'Go' with several female onlookers appearing to be out on a patio under a meandering pine with connected buildings on a pin punched background which is exactly the type of work that 'Wang Hing' did so well. The reverse shows a gorgeous rendering of chrysanthemums in various stages of bloom with tiny buds to beautiful open flower heads in great detail, raised stems, leaves as well as rockery, another plant and a lone butterfly coming from the top left again on a pin punched ground. The workmanship is of the highest order showing fabulous details performed in high relief repousse work with very little wear while opening up to a thick gold gilt interior having its original elastic bands with one side obviously for cigarettes or similar and the opposite side most likely for calling cards as most people did not realize that these type of cases were meant for a dual purpose. The hinge is in fine working condition along with its push button closure with the makers mark and initials on the inside push button spring bar. Condition: Basically perfect with no faults what so ever that I could find as well as little to no rubbing to the outside details with great patina and light tarnish which I did not want to remove leaving that to the new owner. Sizes: Height 3-1/4" x Width 3" x Thickness 3/4" Weight 100grams or 3.6ozs. The winner will not be disappointed so offer to win this one!
