About this item

Antique 19th century rare Chinese solid silver decorative pair of vases, realistically modelled as pair of closed lotus flowers, standing on a hand-carved, pierced wood bases and fitted in the original presentation box. Made by the renowned Cantonese silversmith Cum Shing, he often aimed to create an object that was both traditionally Chinese and theatrical; theatricality seemed to be such an intrinsic part of the Cum Shing experience that when an item appears that is simple, the natural instinct is to check whether it is indeed Cum Shing even though the quality might be there, he also used Chinese mythology and religious elements in his work, as there candlesticks perfectly demonstrate. Wear consistent with age and use. Price per set.
