Chinese Solid Silver Hallmarked Trousse Set

chinese-silver-trousse-3

 

This is a very fine Chinese Solid Silver Hallmarked Trousse Set.  Comprising a great hardwood grip mounted in silver.  The trousse case is made from shagreen with silver mounts.  Also comes complete with chop sticks and toothpick(?) - all made from natural animal tooth and silver mounted - once mount missing.  The knife is exceptionally large with a long blade which makes me think that this was made for a man rather than a woman as the female versions are smaller.  Most of the Chinese trousses' that come onto the market are of naturally smaller proportions but this is a substantial piece and consequently quite rare.  Some small losses to the case.  The bottom silver mount is deeply impressed with a Chinese silver mark.  A very high quality piece.  Blade length is 7.5 inches (12 inches overall).
