A fine example of the work of the master craftsman, Wang Hing of Hong Kong. This globular Chinese Export silver kettle has applied detail of birds and flowers. All the auspicious motifs are represented – lotus for plentifulness, chrysanthemums that bloom through the frost, bamboo for resilience. The lid has beading detail around the edge. The stand of the kettle is in the form of bamboo to match the handle and spout.
