Antique silver goblet. Made in China, circa 1880.
Measures 3 1/4 inches high. Weighs 36.5 grams.
Small goblet, ideal for liquers or cordials.
Classic shape with round base, long stem with an interesting knopf in the middle.
The inverted bell shaped bowl is richly decorated with applied silver in Chinese themes.
Almost entirely surrounding the bowl is a dragon, depicted in great detail, with long whiskers, claws, scales, ragged beard and tail that ends in a blaze that is echoed in the flares around a raised circle behind it.
Clearly these depict well known symbols of Chinese mythology.
Lovely workmanship and highly attractive.
Signed under the base with a star containing a P; SILVER; and 900.
