About this item

Antique early 18th century extremely rare Chinese Kangxi period solid silver box, fan shaped, decorated in repousse' high relief, on very finely tooled matted and gilded ground, top finely cast in high-relief with two scholars situated in a stylised landscape with large floral sprigs and flying birds, surrounded by a key-fret border at the rim, the sides of the top and box decorated in low-relief with further scholars amongst a mountainous waterscape detailed with pavilions and pine trees. The box is of heavy gauge and very well crafted. Unmarked (tested 900+ standard), Kangxi silver would not technically be made for Chinese export, and hence why the silver of this period was often not signed. For more information please see A.Von Ferscht, Chinese export silver 1785-1940, 4th edition 2015, page 98.

Wear consistent with age and use.
