I have for sale a stunning Chinese silver gilt model of a junk boat. The craftsmanship and detail is superb with beautiful enamel decoration and turquoise stones set into the boat.
I have seen many Chinese silver items in this style but never such a exquisite piece in this form. It is probably a unique one off commission piece. The boat measures 25cms long and the boat excluding its stand weighs 587 grams. It has Silver marked to its hull.The boat is in very good condition with perfect enamels. There is some age related discolouration to the gold gilding in a few area's. Two lanterns or perhaps flags poles are missing, the wood stand has a breakages but this is not important. There are two small snips parallel to each other at the stern, possibly was needed by the silversmith to get the necessary bend on the silver mesh or possibly a missing plinth.
