Chinese Export Silver Tea and Coffee Service

$34,500

About

This stunning and complete seven-piece Chinese export silver tea and coffee service was crafted by Yu Chang of Shanghai and Hong Kong, a firm renowned for its unique and high-quality creations. Comprising a hot water kettle and stand, tea pot, coffee pot, sugar, creamer, waste bowl and tray, each piece boasts a wonderful Asian foliate motif. In terms of quality and condition, this service is one of the finest export silver specimens we have ever had the pleasure to offer. Chinese export silver was incredibly popular amongst visiting Western tourists between the 18th and early 20th centuries. These charming pieces featured typical Chinese motifs that were popular amongst Western consumers, including floral patterns, dragons and koi fish. All Chinese silver from this period was exquisitely handcrafted, with its elaborate designs hammered out by master Chinese craftsmen. Largely unidentified until the mid-1970s, a great deal of Chinese silver has since been acquired by museums, making this exquisite tea service a highly desirable rarity on the market. Marked "Yuchang Sterling" Late 19th / Early 20th Century Tray: 34 3/4" wide x 19 3/4” deep Kettle: 16” high on stand
