Chinese silver marks


Hello from Canada.

I was wondering if you knew of any Antique Chinese Silver mark resources.?



Hi Lynne, thanks for joining us on
There are four very good books on chinese silver that I can recommend, these are:
Chinese Export Silver - by Alan James Marlowe
Chniese Export Silver - by Crosby-Forbes
The Chait Collection - by John Kernan
Chinese Export Silver, The Chan Collection - by David Chan

If you need any further help do let me know.
Best regards
Daniel Franks


The best online resource I have found is located at:

It is under construction but the makers mark chart and the maker pages are very informative. The pictures on some of the pages like Luen Wo and Wang Hing are GREAT!
