A substantial piece, this gravy ladle measures 6 1/2" long, has a gold washed, oval bowl that is 2 1/4" by 1 3/4" by 3/4" deep. It weighs 1.9 T. oz.

The fiddle shaped handle has beveled edges, a tipt backside, and curves downward. It has a feathered script "MTP" monogram on the front. There is an exposed drop where the handle joins the bowl.

A "Chinese Export" piece, it is stamped with four pseudo hallmarks used by "Wongshing," aka "Wong Shing," located in Canton c. 1810-35 according to one source, and 1820-60 by another source.

Silver standards vary for Export silver, but it broadly conforms to sterling.

It is in very fine condition. Free of polishing wear, the finish has a lustrous patina, showing only light surface scratches. The bowl remains well-shaped, without dents, dings, or nicks, and the gold remains largely intact.
