This lovely large teapot is hand painted in the Rose Canton style, but with the vignettes of people, which classify it as Rose Mandarin rather than Rose Medallion. The women have touches of gold in their hair, which is a sign of high quality in Rose Mandarin. It's 10-1/2" long and 7-1/2" high.

The top has a deep flange which "pours well and safely", according to the Schiffers in their book "Chinese Export Porcelain". They show several of this type of pot on pages 183 & 184. They also write, "This type is believed to have been made from the middle of the 19th century onwards and
is usually very heavy and thick." (As this teapot is!)

The piece is in very good condition. It has an old repair to the spout, and some gold wear. No chips or cracks. Both pieces ring when tapped.
