China or Overseas Chinese Communities. This ritual wine or libation set is made of gilded (gold-plated) silver, probably in China, or possibly among one of the Chinese communities of Southeast Asia. Made in a Tibetan style, it was either intended for local use or for export to Tibet or Mongolia. Most likely it was intended for serving wine as part of a wedding ceremony. The gilding suggests that this was the intended use. It might also have been used to serve offerings. It comprises an oval tray, six cups, and a tall ewer. The cups are heavy in the hand and have sides decorated with lotus petal motifs. The tray has a plain centre and an elevated rim repoussed with Himalayan Buddhistic motifs.
