Antique Chinese Export Rose Canton Porcelain Tea Pot, Ca. 1860

China Ca. 1860

A nice little porcelain tea pot with very good delineation and bright colors. One side has a Mandarin domestic courtyard scene and the other has flowers, a bird and a butterfly. Except for the handle, spout and scenic reserves there is an unusually dense amount of tightly painted green scrolls with gold and a few butterflies on the rest of the body.

Antique American Bell Metal Andiron Set, Ca. 1800

I don’t get many andirons in bronze. This is a particularly nice group of right and left lemon top andirons with matching shovel and tongs. The log stops and tools have bee hive molded lemon tops.
