Chinese late Qing (early 20th century) hexagonal form teapot or tea/wine warmer. Each side is stamped with "Eight Precious Emblems." About 5” high x 4 1/4” across at the widest point. This form of teapot is illustrated on page 182 (plate 218) of the K. S. Lo Collection in the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware, Part 2. Good overall condition. There are some tiny chips to the edge of the insert and spout. The inset portion does not fit completely flush with the top and the lid might be a replacement. This piece is from the private collection of American expatriates who lived in Hong Kong in the 1970s and 1980s. Please note that the piece is slightly darker than the images suggest.
