Chinese Export Silver Jug

Status: FOR SALE
A Chinese Export Silver Jug, made by the renowned Canton silversmith Khecheong '其昌', around 1850. It is embossed in a style similar to that used in America at this time, and is decorated with 3 birds and a seated hare, as well as a pagoda and other Chinese buildings. The jug has a hinged lid and dragon handle and stands on acanthus feet. Khecheong was the main and biggest supplier of silverware in Canton from around 1830 and this jug was possibly made for an American client to match an existing American made tea service.
