About this item

Antique 17th century extremely rare Chinese Ming dynasty solid silver-gilt dish, with a wide everted rim rising from a flat base, the interior centred with a shou roundel surrounded by pairs of immortals paying tribute to Shoulao and his two attendants beneath an overhanging pine tree, situated amongst lingzhi stems issuing from rockwork, with a deer in the foreground and a flying crane above, the rim decorated with stylised lotus foliates. Unmarked (tested 900+ standard), Ming 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. Weight: 228g. H 6 mm .
