Lots 82-88: Chinese Export Silver from the Estate of Aage Ramussen, Denmark
Aage Rasmussen was a marine engineer from Aarhus Denmark and worked with the East Asiatic Company in China from the early 20th century until he died in Shanghai in 1939. His wife and two children did not leave China until 1949. The silver pieces were passed down through the family to the current owners who reside in British Columbia.
