A very special Chinese Export silver gallery tray.
By the famous silversmith, Luen Wo of Shanghai , who is reknowned for his use of flower motifs , this shows the highest form of craftsmanship.
Irises for fruitfulness , plum blossom for new beginnings , chrysanthemums that bloom through the frost and bamboo for resilience have all been engraved in the finest detail on the plate of the tray
These motifs have also been pierced and repousse worked into the gallery and a dragon has been added for good measure – all the asupicious motifs
A truly wonderful piece
