Subject:Trans. please? - Chinese Export Silver ladle
Posted By: Paul Fri, Apr 14, 2017 IP:

Can anyone help with translating the characters on the back of this ladle? (There are no other markings.)

Description: 7.5", 34gm, with solid handle stamped on the flat back. Bat at the top. Double happiness in the bowl.

Apothecary spoon? Opium spoon? Tea scoop?
Age? ... I'm thinking late 19th - early 20th C.

Any comments welcome. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
