Chinese late Qing (late 19th century) green glazed Shiwan pottery hexagonal form teapot with a pouring spout, small lid, and carrying handle. Measures about 8 3/4"H (to top of handle) x 7 1/2" diameter. Very good overall condition with a nicely executed repair to one handle flange (see enlargement 7). An illustration of a similar teapot can be found on page 51, plate 12 of "Shiwan Ceramics: Beauty, Color, and Passion" by Fredrikke S. Scollard and Terese Tse Bartholomew, Chinese Cultural Center of San Francisco exhibition catalogue, 1994. According the the authors, these teapots were commonly used in Chinese villages. This piece is from an old Tucson, Arizona estate.
