Product Description

An impressive 19th Century Chinese Blue and White decorated, very large earthenware teapot in good to fair condition, showing stained heat cracking to the glaze, chips and hairline cracks from prolonged use.

The size of the teapot leads to the opinion that is was for a street vendor or canteen. It is decorated in blue over a white glaze with a rather naive garden scene and bird on one side and a bush on the other. On top the lid has meaningless Chinese characters, indicating the potter was illiterate. There would have been a wicker or rope covered handle but this has perished.
An unusual item.

Size: 27.5 x 20 x 23.5cm
Weight: 2788g
