Chinese late Qing (early 20th century) hexagonal form teapot or tea/wine warmer. Each side is stamped with "Eight Precious Emblems." It stands about 5” high and measures about 4 ¼” across at the widest point. Very good overall condition except for a few tiny chips. The inset portion does not seem to fit completely flush with the top. The lid appears to be a replacement. 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. This piece is from the private collection of American expatriates who lived in Hong Kong in the 1970s and 1980s.
