Just got this from eBay and paid the princely sum of AU$9.99. Just wondering if anyone can decipher the strange stamp next to the makers mark, Am wondering if it is silver or pewter as it is definitely not plated.
Its a bit hard to get a good look, but I think you might have a piece of Chinese Export Silver. From a distance the handle looks like it might be Chinese (is it bamboo shoots on the handle?) and that would mean the second symbol is a chinese symbol. There was a Wing Chun working in Hong Kong around the turn of the last century, but I cant see his mark.
