Fine antique chinese Zisha Ware Teapot, late 19th Century
Great shaped and moulded to simulate the trunk of a flowering plum tree. Two times marked, one time inside the lid “Jing Ming” and second time a flower mark on the bottom.
Very good condition: small chips at the lid inside, some more traces of wear typical of use and age – no cracks, hairlines or restorations. See photos.
A similar teapot is illustrated in the book “Yixing Teapots for Europe” by Patrice Valfré on page 185.
Length: ca. 19,5 cm
