A yellow ground enameled porcelain tea caddy with a design of flowers in pastel colors with an apocryphal Qianlong reign mark.

The lozenge-shaped porcelain body has a raised neck and four raised feet. It has been decorated with a yellow enamel background and a myriad of colorful lotuses, roses, mums, and prunus blossoms on the four sides and top. The bottoms of the feet are not glazed but the base is glazed. The caddy has a dark wood lid that fits over the mouth. The mouth and interior are glazed for tea storage.

There is a hand painted Qianlong reign mark in iron red on the center of the base. The characters are crisp and well executed.

CONDITION

There are no cracks, chips, or breaks. There are kiln flaws such as grit in the glaze on the top, black spots, and patchiness in the yellow background glaze. The wood cap is not original to the caddy but fits well.
