This fine quality Chinese Export Silver rickshaw condiment was made around 1895 in Canton by Bao Xing. In neat handicraft, the rickshaw and the rickshaw puller have been formed out of silver. Instead of passengers, he transports a miniature pepper shaker and an open salt as well as a lidded mustard pot. Salt pot and mustard pot are fashioned as gourds and the open salt pot in the form of a small wooden bucket. Novelty rickshaw condiment sets were a popular item made by many of the Chinese Export Silver makers.

The small condiment set is in good condition, with only minimal traces of age and use. The silver is partially tarnished and small, superficial scratches give proof of earlier usage. The small salt and mustard spoons are missing. The overall weight of the complete set is 243.4 grams. The dimensions are: 20 cm length, 11 cm height, 8.5 cm width.

Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.
