Here is a pepperette marked to the inner base with maker’s marks that appear to be Chinese in origin; untraced but most likely a silversmith from Shanghai, Honk Kong or Canton. It has been tested to confirm they are 925 sterling silver quality. The pepperette is pear in shape figure with a depiction of an elderly Chinese man; quite probably a tribute to one of the Immortals. It has a weighted screw base that acts as a self-righting mechanism and that means it will always stand upright. It is in very good antique condition with no faults or damage; commensurate light wear; the screw cap base is a little tricky to screw on. The photos are part of the description and condition report. Measure H4.8 x 3.9cm maximum girth; 35.5g. We have listed several other pieces jewellery, silver, decorative art and collectables.
