Chinese Export Silver & Enamel Box..Anyone Know Maker & Date

Postby dartsil » Thu Feb 10, 2011 8:44 am

Chinese Silver & Enamel Box which is Chinese in origin.

However only Chinese character marks to base with no English lettering to make it nice and easy to work out maker and date. Can anyone help with a maker and an approximate age for this wonderful highly detailed piece.

Thanks in advance for any help that comes my way.

Hello, they are maker's mark along with "pure silver" mark in Chinese. Circa would be late 19th C or early 20th C, I would say.

Hello, the supposed to be "solid silver 纹银" was misspelled as "纹艮”. Be cautious there are lots of fakes out there. Chris
