I bought this Chinese Famille Verte Puzzle Teapot about 15 to 20 years ago. It is 19th century, Porcelain, modeled in the form of a Shou Character, with central panel painted with a man. Loved it when I saw it, and really find it an interesting conversation piece. It is, sadly, missing the original handle, which is not at all noticeable except for close inspection. I have tried to accentuate the two places on the side where it must have been originally. Otherwise, a totally delightful piece.
Country of Origin: China.
Size: 9" tall.
Condition: Missing handle; otherwise Very Good.
Circa: Mid to late Nineteenth Century.
***** Just saw one offered at (Kaminski) $1000.00 starting price; estimate $2000.00 - $4000.00!!!!
