Antique Miniature Chinese Export Porcelain Tea Pot, Ca. 1860
China Ca. 1860
This is the only miniature Chinese porcelain tea pot I have had. It has the unusual use of yellow enamel on much of the body with two reserves, one of a Mandarin court yard scene and the other with a bird sitting on a peony stem.
Excellent antique condition. Only light rubbing of the gold mostly on the finial. No repair.
2 3/8" high, 4 1/8" long, 2 5/8" wide
