“The markets for sterling silver and Chinese antiques are both hot. As a result, Chinese export silver (CES) is bringing unheard of sums at auction. Because some CES has pseudo English hallmarks dealers and appraisers often misidentify it as English sterling silver. This can result in inaccurate valuations. This webinar will provide a brief history of CES. Particular attention will be paid to identifying CES by its decorative motifs, construction, weight, etc. Important makers and forms will be highlighted.”
