About The Artist:

Chinese silver for the export market began to flourish in the 18th and 19th centuries. These goblets were obviously made for the Western market due to their classical shape and swag decoration. In the early 20th century, as more and more foreigners visited China, the silversmithing industry there expanded significantly and became more automated. Chinese silver did not adhere to the same standards of purity as Western manufacturers and often used a gage much higher than sterling, in this case a minimum of 990 parts silver out of 1,000, with only 10 parts an alloy of other metals.
