A ‘PRUNUS’ SILVER PRESENTATION VASE, WANG HING, LATE QING DYNASTY
晚清宏興款桃花紋銀瓶

China, Canton or Hong Kong, c. 1890. The body is finely chased and embossed with gnarled angular prunus branches with many blossoms and buds against an ice-crack ground, all below a foliate border at the shoulder.

Inscriptions: To the underside, ‘HW’ (for Wang Hing), ‘90’ (silver fineness), and ‘baosheng’ (the artist).

Provenance: From a private estate in London, United Kingdom.
Condition: Excellent condition with only minor wear and light scratches.

Weight: 570.3 g
Dimensions: Height 26.7 cm

The ovoid body rising from a short, separately crafted, screw-on foot, supported on three balls atop a stepped circular base with beaded edge, to a waisted neck with flaring rim, the shoulder with two handles in the form of flowering prunus branches entwined reminiscent of eternal knot.
