A colorful teapot with a dragon head on the spout mouth and a foo lion finial on the lid that is a very early example of rose medallion..

A molded porcelain teapot with a lid that is covered in panels with people and flowers. There are scrolling floral and rose patterns connecting the panels. Gilding has been used to accent and add to the overall effect. The mouth on the spout is a gilded dragon head and lid is topped with a gilded foo lion final. The lid has the same colorful scrolling and fits the lid snugly.

There is a shallow foot that is unglazed while the base is glazed. There are no marks or labels on the base.

CONDITION

There is a small chip on the dragon’s lower lip on the spout. There are no other chips, cracks, or breaks. There is wear to the gilding. There is a spider craze under the lid.

A small, colorful, Intricate teapot that reminds me of the 18th century teapots. All of the handwork and expert painting make this a small gem.
