The extremely rich detail and refined decor with partial gilding is typical of silver from the middle of the Qing dynasty. The plate is also ungemarkt, what's in it for Chinese silver from this period is unusual. Only on a later export silver Chinese manufacturer's brand is often found.

To date, a small wine-jug made of silver with similar decoration, also ungemarkt and in the same time, was auctioned off in our auction 406 under lot 2581.
