CHINESE EXPORT SILVER MAKERS MARKS

THE 4TH EDITION IS CURRENTLY THE LARGEST AND MOST COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO CHINESE EXPORT SILVER EVER UNDERTAKEN

 

Grey Spacer Bar

It not only gives an in depth guide to retail and manufacturing silversmiths’ silver marks but also the highly definitive styles many of them evolved.

As a body of work, it clarifies many of the long-standing misconceptions that have arisen over the years and presents the historical evidence of how the phenomenon came into being and how it existed and interacted alongside silver that was made for the China market.

The mistaken belief that all Chinese silver marks are “maker’s marks” is explained – almost all Chinese silver marks that appear in English are retail silversmith’s marks with the majority of Chinese character marks being the mark of the artisan silversmith

    Adrien,

    We have not talked in a couple of years. I came back to the links and pages you sent to me back then, and I thought I had purchased your book Chinese Export Silver…” at that time, but can not find it. I was looking into a Chinese export silver piece a client has. So, I clicked on your book link to buy it again (or possibly I the first time, as I can not find it on my computer) but was not able to do so. My PayPal is browntrout@yahoo.com, can you send me an invoice so I can get it again.

    I hope this note finds you and all of your loved ones happy and healthy and that you are enjoying your work in China very much.

    Thank you, Greg C. Brown, M.S., ISA AM.
