FINEST WANG HING CHINESE EXPORT SILVER BOWL
This is without doubt one of the finest Chinese export silver bowls in existence. There is no published item comparable in terms of size, weight and quality of workmanship. It has a separate hand-hammered silver liner which is also unique on this scale. The subject matter derives from the Chinese 14th century historical novel, the "Romance of the Three Kingdoms". The quality, detail and depth of repousse work is remarkable and the condition is perfect with no rubbing to the fine details on the figures faces and clothes. With the maker's mark of 'Wang Hing'. Dimensions: 15.5" (39cm) wide by 8.25" (21cm) high. Weight: 4150gms or 132 troy ounces. Date: circa 1880
