On offer is a Chinese export porcelain helmut form creamer That would date from about 1800. This is a well known Chinese form and such creamers were exported to the US in great numbers. The decoration done in just black was copied by English and European factories as well. The piece is actually fine for use.
Dimensions: Height is 5" to the top of the handle and 4 1/8" to the top of the spout. The length from spout to handle is 6 1/2" and the diameter of the base is 3".
Condition: Very good. There are no chips, cracks, or repairs. The glaze is smooth and unworn and the decoration on the top and front is good; there may be some wear to the flower sprigs on the sides but it is hard to tell how much as the sprigs were small when enameled on.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing flaw or repair. While this is normal and to be expected, I note any known issues in the condition description.
