The British East India Company held the monopoly on importing porcelain from China, and this teapot probably made the long sea journey in one of its ships. Here, the decoration of flowers in puce monochrome may have been inspired by English teapots, since they look rather more European than oriental. It is in super condition. The only damage is a very small chip to the rim of the lid that has been invisibly repaired (see photo). It is nearly six inches in height.


A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
