Two Chinese export silver circular bowls by Tien Shing of Hong Kong , circa 1880. The almost hemispherical bowls pierced and embossed with objects or bamboo, each on a slightly splayed collet foot, pale green glass liners.
The quality of the pierced and embossed decoration looks superb. They were made by a master craftsman. The glass bowls, I must say, look somewhat a bit oversized and so are possibly not original.
Size : 6 cm. ( 2 23/64" ) high and a diameter of 12 cm. ( 4 23/32" ).
The two silver pieces ( ex glass ) weigh 241 g.
Obviously not a matching pair as such but both share the same dimensions.
Condition : excellent.
