Very nice Chinese export porcelain tea pot in Canton decoration. The slightly tapered drum-shaped body is decorated with typical Canton scenes of islands, bridges, boats, etc. and is accented with a raincloud border along the top edge. The lid, spout and handle are also decorated with typical motifs. The color is very nice with terrific clarity and depth. Likewise, the body is of nice color.
Origin: China, circa 1820. Condition: excellent, no chips or cracks. Size: 6-1/2” tall to top of finial; 8-1/8” wide from spout to handle.
