Important Marked Antique Chinese 22k Gold & Sterling Silver Enamel Snuff Opium For Sale
IMPORTANT Marked ANTIQUE Chinese 22K GOLD & STERLING Silver ENAMEL Snuff or OPIUM BoxI apologize for having to relist this item. Because of a buyer's request, I took the piece to a jeweler to be tested for metal content. I was pleased to hear that the piece is Sterling grade silver with a thick overlay of over 22K Gold. Please offer accordingly. A kind friend gave me a translation of the characters, saying: the
characters on the box are 2 sentences quoted from an old poem, the
meaning - young married woman takes a flower and asks her husband who
is more charming, she or the flower... in chinese pinyin"ZheLai (take or pick)DuiJing (in front of the mirror) Bi(compare
to)HongZhuang (her beauty),Wen (ask)Lang (husband) HuaHao (flower
beautiful) Nu (I) Yan (looking) Hao (beautiful)" (Thank you Andrew!) Please see the other antique Chinese enamel pieces I have for sale this week. This item is another piece from my personal collection of 25 years. It is an extraordinary piece with excellent color and craftsmanship in carved and chased metalwork as well as enamel work. There is a character mark on the bottom. I do not know what the content of the metal is, it appears to be gilding over silver. The top fits very tightly on the box.
There are minor losses to enamel. I may be selling others of this quality in the coming weeks. Please study all of the photos, as I have taken pictures from almost every angle. Please ask if you need to see more. The item measures approx 1 7/8 x 1 1/2 x 7/8".Payment is required within 5 days please! Ask questions before offerding please!
