This early to mid-19th century Chinese pewter teapot is sized to brew two small cups of tea. The outsized handle, made to resemble a Western cup handle, and the long curved spout are said to be a favorite design of that era, probably because it was so functional. Pewter was used for brewing strong teas; ceramics for brewing lighter teas. This pot has a few small dents on one side of the shoulder; otherwise it is in good condition. Dimensions: height 7" (18 cm), width from handle to spout tip 6-1/2" (17 cm), diameter of pot 3" (8 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
