Obverse: "Cake (of) standard silver (from the) business firm (of) Chin Cheng Chee (in the) Shanghai district (in the) 6th year (of Emperor) Hsien Feng ;" Reverse: "Made (by) Feng Nien, silversmith; Supervised (by) Chow Yuen Yu. Exact weight one Tsaoping Tael." A <strong>RARE </strong>type that is almost never encountered, with our last offering of this type being in our October 2020 Hong Kong sale. This piece is quite lovely, with good details that are crisply and clearly applied to the surfaces. The noted cleaning is not so aggressive nor disfiguring to detract much from the general beauty of the piece. An example that seldom appears, leaving this piece the example that should be much sought for be collectors, as the next appearance of this Tael might be years from now.
