Guest Book
This is a charming old cloisonne teapot from the later part of the Qing Dynasty in China. During this time period the traditions and culture of tea making and drinking had evolved to include the appreciation of tea articles as art objects in addition to their utilitarian purposes. This well crafted miniture teapot would have been sought after for its sculptural form.

Each side of the body of the teapot has a different floral motif with a background pattern of clouds traditional Ruyi. The handle and spout have traditional scalloped pattern cloisonne. It is in excellent condition. It stands 3.5 inches tall and spands 5 inches across including spout and handle.
