Chinese export porcelain Kangxi style lidded teapot or wine ewer molded in the form of the character “shou” (long life) and decorated in famille verte enamels on the biscuit. The body is densely covered in blue, turquoise, aubergine, and yellow flowers surrounded by a multitude of tiny black dots set against a bright lime green background. The yellow and black handle and spout are painted to resemble rattan weaving. The square cover holds a lion dog finial. Beneath the cover is an oblong white panel holding the four characters “ji xiang ruyi” (good fortune comes true). Dates from the early Republic period (early 20th century). 9" high x 8" across (handle to spout). Very good overall condition with no chips, cracks, or restoration. This piece was purchased from a Tucson, Arizona collection.
