This elegant and extremely rare pair of frames are remarkable examples of Chinese export silver. Boasting a graceful oval form, the frames are decorated in a stunning floral pattern of chrysanthemum flowers on a matted ground. Intricate borders of trailing vines and embellished leaves complete these exquisite pieces.

Beginning in the 18th century, silver workshops in China specialized in the manufacture of silver export pieces for Western audiences. Typically bearing motifs that were popular amongst Americans and Europeans such as dragons, bamboo and floral patterns, these charming pieces were all beautifully handcrafted with the utmost skill. Today, important pieces of Chinese export silver such as this one can be found in many of the major museum collections, and are highly valued amongst collectors.

One features the mark of Cum Wo, Hong Kong, circa 1840-1910, the other the mark of Luen Wo, Shanghai, circa 1880-1925
