I have a Chinese silver and porcelain wine cup for sometime for which I need some help to identify the age. I brought it from a town near Edinburgh, Scotland. Seller told it was quite old and it has silver cup holder with some quite intricate design and pattern. It has phoenix and dragon design on the side of the cup and 4 character mark to the base. It has golden colour to hairs for both figures including claws which has now rubbed off possibly due to wear and age.
I was told that it is common to give such gifts in Chinese culture in marriage in the past. Can anyone opine here what age and make this could be?
