From a Yarmouth, MA estate
It's so rare these days to be able to find 18th century Chinese teapots in good shape: they are usually missing the lid, or the handle and sprout is broken. This teapot, on the other hand, has survived more than in tact, and is a curious blend of European and Chinese influences. Its not clear if teapots like this were influenced by Meissen wares, or vice versa. Whatever the case, I absolutely love its fantastic shape, which is a successful pairing of voluminous curves with fragile delicacy.
