Product Description

A substantial Sterling Silver circular salver tray that was presented to Mr S.G. Adams, a recipient of the 1911 Chinese Revolution Red Cross Merit Medal.

The salver is engraved 'Presented by the European Staff of Imperial Chemical Industries (China) Ltd to S.G. Adams Esq. on the occasion of his retirement 1935'. Adams had worked prior to this as a missionary in China and got involved in the 1911 Revolution, on a humanitarian basis. As a result of this, he was awarded the very rare Revolution Red Cross Merit Medal Silver class by the Commander in Chief (and later President) Li Yuan Hong (1864-1928). The Red Cross had just started in China and Adams must have provided important services to achieve the award. He later went to work for I.C.I., probably because of his knowledge and contacts, before retiring in 1935. Fine history to the salver.

The salver is quite heavy gauge silver and rests on 3 small pedestal feet. It is Birmingham hallmarked, with the date stamp for 1934. The maker's mark is that of William Suckling Ltd of Albion and Vyse Street, Birmingham.
