Pair of matching pepper pots/ condiment jars, each heavily repoussed, detailed Chinese scenes. Each pot is different, perhaps telling different stories. One of the pots has a glass liner, but the second one does not. Chinese scenes embossed all around the body of the pots and a fruit design (likely Lychee) etched onto the lids; the lychee is a Chinese symbol of romance, beauty and good luck. I've been collecting CES for almost 20 years and I've never seen this fruit on another piece of Chinese export silver. Each pot is signed "HC" for Hung Chong (Shanghai, 1880 - 1925). This pair appears to be c. 1890. The pieces also have Chinese character marks on the bottom, likely indicating who the actual silversmith was. I have not been able to translate the Chinese marks. Each pot measures 2 1/2" tall x 2 1/2" wide across handle and 1 3/4" deep. Great condition.
