Tiny Chinese Yixing Buff Pottery Teapot or Water Pot

Tiny buff clay YIXING POTTERY CLAY TEAPOT or WATER POT, with red, blue, and yellow enameled flowers, and scattered celedon enamel such as a bit on the finial, on spout, around rim, and on handle loops; a little gilt on the finial, rim, and handle loops. Totally made by hand, and quite old. We do not know the exact age, but suggest it may be 18th Century, or older. We cannot, however, guarantee age as any older than 19th Century.

CONDITION: Wear to the handle; small chip under tip of spout; looks like a surface hairline inside, but it does not go through to outside; discolorations.

It measures a petite 2-1/2" to top of finial, 3-1/4" to top of handle, 3-1/2" from spout to handle loop, 2" rim diameter, 1-3/4" base diameter.
