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.
Excellent antique condition with only minor rubbing of the gold. No repairs.
3 7/8" H, 6 3/8" L, 4" W
