Fantastic Wang Hing Chinese Export Silver document box. This incredible box rests on for dragon heads with open mouths, fangs bared. Incredibly intricate dragons adorn the entire body of this box. It measures 11 across, stands 4 tall and is approximately 4 1/2 deep. The interior is 2 1/4 deep x 10 1/2. Weight is 2.4 pounds. For those of you who are familiar with Wang Hing you are privy to the fact that this is a stunning, larger piece. A little bit of research and I found that the studio of Wang Hing quite literally was the inspiration for quite a few of Tiffanys most sought after Asiatic patterns. Further research indicates that Tiffany carried quite a few designs of Wang Hing & Co. Silver work separate and aside from their collaboration. Overall this piece is in beautiful condition. I note and have circled for your perusal the front left-hand corner where some of the silver fine work has been pushed inward. The same goes for some of the curls of silver on the base of the Dragons head feet. I have not attempted to simply push these areas out nor have I polished this fantastic box. I will leave that up to the new owner. The item “Excellent Wang Hing Chinese Export Sterling Silver Dragon Document Box” is in sale since Sunday, March 7, 2021.
