A Chinese Export Silver trumpet-shaped vase signed with the maker's mark 'WN' for Wing Nam of Hong Kong. The vase is decorated with a heavily embossed dragon whose body is entwined around the vase. Above the dragon's head, there is a single blank roundel which, together with the dragon, conjure up the traditional 'dragon chasing the pearl of wisdom' imagery.
Age: C 1900
Signed: 'WN' - which stands for Wing Nam
Condition: Good for its age with no damages or repairs.
Size: 7.5 inches H (19 cm)
Weight: unknown as the base of the vase is weighted. However, the gauge of the silver is very thick.
