This early 19th century tea pot was created in China for the western export market. The flower and fruit hand-painted decoration and gilding. Which was probably executed in Europe on the blank form then shipped to America for sale. Drum pot with incised vertical lines. Original lid with gilded "berry" finial. Straight spout with no chips or cracks. Braided handle attached to pot with "lotus" mounts.
Measures 8.5" wide (from handle edge to spout end) x 4.75" deep (diameter of pot itself) x 5.5" high.
In EXCELLENT and RARE antique condition. No cracks, crazing, staining, or chips of note. Some very minor paint loss - specifically to one small area on the lid itself (blue decoration). Overall gilding loss which is quite normal for Chinese export porcelain of this age. We see what appears to possibly be one repaired chip on the inner pot opening. That said - we are not certain. Please see photos for details.
An additional $40 charge will be billed via PayPal in additon to purchase price for shipping within the 48 contiguous Unites States via FedEX Home/Ground delivery. See Shipping and handling section for further details.
Early 19th Century Antique Chinese Export Tea Pot
All twelve plates in very good antique condition. As is typical of antique faience - most of the plates have several chips and "dings" along their edges. Along with a range of underglaze stains on their backs. No cracks or structural defects. See photographs for details
