This impressive antique Chinese export silver silver tot/beaker set has a tapering cylindrical tapering form.

The surface of each plain tot is encircled with an applied iconic Chinese dragon design.

Each vessel retains the original gilded interior.

NOTE: Due to the small stature of these drinking vessels it can be determined that they were crafted for Baijiu/shaojiu (白酒, báijiǔ), a traditional Chinese 40-60% volume alcoholic beverage made from grain.
