BID ON THE-SALEROOM
A cased set of six Chinese export napkin rings, each of circular openwork form with a band of roundels containing Chinese characters and a vacant cartouche. Maker's mark T.S, possibly Tien Shing (Hong Kong & Singapore circa 1850-1910). Weight 4 ozt (124.6 grams).
The napkin rings appear in fairly good overall condition, displaying some general wear, surface scratches, marks and tarnishing commensurate with the age and use. Minor dints/knocks to pierced sections but generally ok. Maker's marks are mostly legible.
