A stylish and elegant large silver vessel or urn, made in China around 1920s at a time when western goods were highly in vogue. The shape is inspired by Greecian urns and the body surface is etched with detailed acanthus leaf scrolls. The bottom is marked "chun yin", meaning "solid silver".

Condition: Great antique condition. Due to the softness of the silver, there are some age-related small flaws and dents. [Please examine all photos carefully, as they are part of the condition report.]
