a Rare Chinese porcelain famille noire teapot with two quails
a Good and rare pear shaped famille noire Chinese porcelain teapot with 2 leaf shaped medaillons on a black ground, containing 2 quails. On the black ground still a very good amount of traces of gold leaves and branches. This is very unusual as the high-lighted gold applied on the glaze is very vulnerable and mostly weares off during time! The matching lid with 2 leaf shaped areas with flowering plants and 2 rose peaches. A rare and older teapot with a single hole spout opening which indicates a dating before Qianlong reign. These much sought after famille noire (black) Chinese porcelain teapots are hard to find!
Size: measures 15cm from handle to tip of spout and 12 cm in height.
Condition: Excellent, no chips, hair line or any restorations.
Period: Yongzheng 1723-1735, Qing period.
