A nice set of antique Chinese export silver buckles. Each is a Chinese character enclosed within a horse shoe with lots of open work. They stand for good fortune and long life typically Chinese. One of the hallmarks I think reads "Kwan Tak". The Chinese are inveterate gamblers. Both Shanghai and Hongkong had thriving race courses. These are from the roaring 20's. These buckles bring an extra dose of luck!

2.25" by 2.25". Wonderful condition. Will polish brightly if you wish.

Sold thank you.
This is a fun antique Chinese export silver war junk on a beautifully carved and fitted stand. The typical junk sails are textured in silver to resemble the real thing. The stiff sailors are dressed in the fancy uniforms of the 19th century Ch'ing (Qing) troops. There are cannons mounted on the bridge which is aft and very high normal for Chinese junks. Really detailed pair of anchors hanging off the bow. The rudder moves as do the penants...
