Please refer to our stock # 034 when inquiring.
A charming chinese porcelain tea pot modelled as a small dragon emerging from a group of fruits and covered in a sancai glaze.

Probably dating from the late C19th (I have seen these described as C18th and early C20th), it measures 7 1/4inches (18.4cms) from the tips of spout and handle.

It is in very good condition. There is a very small, surface glaze chip to the side of the finger citron (See left hand side of fruit in pic. 11).
