Mystery Hallmark "All Silver Taiwan" Tea cup(?) Pair

Postby SterlingRookie » Mon Mar 12, 2018 5:50 pm

Hello again everyone, I recently came across these 2 tea cups sets (Or at least that is what I think they are) that are marked "All Silver Taiwan". Now I've seen my fair share of silver hallmarks but this is a first. Originally I brushed this off as some silver plate junk but after I realized how soft the metal actually was, I tested it out with nitric acid and it came back as silver! (900, 925, 1000 I'm not sure but definitely silver). Now these have nice and detailed etchings as well.

**As people have said in the past when I post here, I'm really not sure how to imbed images. The only way I know how to get you guys the images is an imgur link (Which is what I have been doing)**

After some reacher, I wasn't bale to find any exact matches, but something similar was stated as "Export Chinese"?? Any help at all would be appreciated!

A pair of tea cups with lids and saucers made in Taipei after 1949, probably 1960s to 70s.
