Circa 1840 chinese Export Rose Medallion Bell shape Teapot in Excellent Condition. This is a form like the marmite that you don't see that often. This one is very good quality and in very good condition. No chips, cracks or restoration. This teapot measures 4 1/2" to the top of the gilded finial. Opposite the side of the scene with the people is a extremely decorated bird. We also have added images of ones in the Schiffer Chinese Export Porcelain Book Published by Herrbert, Peter and Nancy Schiffer. Herbert was the father and the shinese export expert, dealer and collector. He passed away several years ago. I had bought many things from him when he had a shop. I had a conversation with Peter recently about possibly updating a similar rteference book on Chinese Export Porcelain.
