OVER THE NEXT WEEK I WILL BE saleING A FINE GROUP OF CHINESE EXPORT SILVER HOLLOWARE AND A COLLECTION OF RARE ENGLISH SILVER ANIMAL PINCUSHIONS.

Up for sale is a superb CHINESE EXPORT SOLID SILVER 6 SIDED TEASET with APPLIED CHARACTER SCENES + FLORAL MOTIFSmade by WING NAM c.1890.

This is an unusual and very pretty teaset (character sets likethis are getting increasingly hard to find)with VERY FINELY APPLIED SCENES OFVILLAGE LIFEand FLORAL MOTIFS.

The scenes on the teapot are DIFFERENT on each of the 6 sides:

1. A TEACHER? AND PUPIL SAT BY A TABLE

2. A MAN PULLING A CART

3. 2 MEN CARRYING A HEAVY LOAD

4. FARMING WITH OXEN

5. OLD MAN REMOVING WATER BUCKETS

6. 2 MEN WORKING IN A FIELD

The scenes are finelyREPOUSSED and ENGRAVED and then applied to the teapot. There is also engraved background scenes to some of the panels. The handle and spout are of BAMBOO form. The lid/cover has an applied BAMBOO finial surrounded by a band of BAMBOO engraving. The2 handled SUGAR BOWL and CREAMER have 6DIFFERENT PANELS, with applied scenes of A MAN AND CHILD UNDER A TREE and floral motifs. The SUGAR BOWL has its ORIGINAL COVER/LID.The lid/cover has an applied BAMBOO finial surrounded by a bandof BAMBOO engraving.The interiors of the SUGAR AND CREAMER still retain their original HONEY GOLD WASH.

All 3 pieces standon 6 sided pedestal bases. They are allsigned - WN and CHINESE CHARACTERS.

This a good sized teaset, with the teapot measuring approx. 26 cm (over 10 inches) end of handle to tip of spout.

The teaset is made of heavy guage SOLID silver and weighs a solid 35.5 troy ounces (1,104 grams)

The CONDITION is SUPERB with NO WEAR WHATSOEVER to any of the APPLIED scenes OR engraved backgrounds. There are NO REPAIRS and NO DAMAGE just normal scratching. The teaset has a nice old PATINA and needs some cleaning.

My pictures are REALLY POOR and do NO JUSTICE to this lovely teaset. THISTEASET IS FAR, FAR BETTER IN REAL LIFE!!!!!!
