This is a hand-made China Trade (Chinese Export) Silverware item which shows a remarkable quality. In the second half of the 19th Century some self-assured and larger Silversmith Workshops in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Canton started to introduce own Designs where the form and function followed Western items but where own decoration with Chinese motifs was added. This Beaker was previously owned by an European Insurance Broker who was located in Southern China.
