Chinese Qing Blue & White Porcelain Lidded Tea Caddy Canister Pea Vine
Chinese Qing dynasty square form lidded tea caddy decorated overall in underglaze blue with a pattern of simplistic flowers and scrolling pea vines. The lid holds a single 6-petal flower at the center. The interior of the mouth and jar, underside of the lid, and flat base are unglazed. The edges where the four sides and top meet have the characteristic “moth eaten” fritting that is often found in Kangxi tea caddies. The square form, unglazed flat base, and fritting at the edges is typical of Kangxi tea caddies, however, the style of decoration is more often seen in 19th century porcelain. Therefore, we are conservatively dating the piece to the 19th century. 5 3/8” high x 3 1/4” wide. Very good overall condition. It is possible that the lid might not be original to the piece. This tea caddy is from the private collection of a former American resident in Guangzhou and Beijing from 1983-1987.
