CHINESE EXPORT SILVER MAKERS MARKS

 

THE 4TH EDITION IS CURRENTLY THE LARGEST AND MOST COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO CHINESE EXPORT SILVER EVER UNDERTAKEN

Grey Spacer Bar

It not only gives an in depth guide to retail and manufacturing silversmiths’ silver marks but also the highly definitive styles many of them evolved.

As a body of work, it clarifies many of the long-standing misconceptions that have arisen over the years and presents the historical evidence of how the phenomenon came into being and how it existed and interacted alongside silver that was made for the China market.

The mistaken belief that all Chinese silver marks are “maker’s marks” is explained – almost all Chinese silver marks that appear in English are retail silversmith’s marks with the majority of Chinese character marks being the mark of the artisan silversmith
