This is a very good Yixing "sanxianghu": Yixing claypot inside, wrapped with pewter on the outside, finished off with old jade (qing yu) original pieces at the handle, lid and spout. Calligraphy on one side, flowers on the other. This one has no mark in the base. The calligraphy is by one Su Chuan, a scholar of the 19th century. Very nice pot. Very good patina but a little dirty in places. We have not cleaned the pewter: that is for the next home!
