Thomas Jen­ner-Fust, Di­rec­tor & Auc­tion­eer at Chor­ley’s, dis­cusses why gli"er­ing Chi­nese sil­ver is mak­ing waves at auc­tion... ‘The boom in the Chi­nese art mar­ket has been wellpub­li­cised but, while jade and porce­lain have hit the head­lines, there has been a quiet in­crease in prices for Chi­nese ex­port sil­ver. With its dis­tinc­tive style even dec­o­ra­tive pieces man­u­fac­tured in the early 20th cen­tury are see­ing strong in­ter­est.’
