Major collections of Chinese export silver in the West are mostly composed of products of the late Qing and early Republic period. However, history of the subject can be traced to much earlier times. A substantial portion of the Muwen Tang Collection of Chinese export silver are dated to the 18th and early 19th Centuries, including a well preserved Chinese export filigreé silver tea-set formerly in the collection of Queen Juliana of the Netherlands.

223 pieces of top quality Chinese export silver wares from the Muwen Tang Collection are included in the catalogue to illustrate the scope and skills of the Chinese silversmiths. History, retailers, makers and production methods are also fully discussed in the introductory paper on the subject.
