Product Description

One Chinese Imperial Antique Ornate Silver Cup to German Civil Servant. Item is trademarked and the condition is extremely fine.

Fashioned in silver, this piece illustrates a full-length dragon stretching around the circumference of the cup, with an inscription in German reading “Dem Kollegen Johannes Hoppe zum Geburtstage 9. September 1903. Das Beamtem …. Tientsin” (To our colleague Johannes Hoppe for his birthday September 9, 1903. Civil Servant …. Tientsin) above the back half of the dragon.

Above the front half of the dragon’s body is an inscription in Chinese with the city name, Tientsin (northern coastal mainland China, now known as Tientjin”, dated “1901” and marked with the emperor’s name, “Guang Xu” (Qing Dynasty, 1875-1908) and “in the 29th year of his reign”.

The bottom of the cup is a hallmark with the city, Tientsin and the manufacturer’s name. One side of the bottom, joining to the sides, is slightly separated. Deep patina, but otherwise in extremely fine condition. It approximately measures 68.5mm (mouth diameter) x 49mm (base diameter) x 111mm (height) and weighs 131.1 grams.
