19th/20th C. Cadogan Wine Pot – Yixing

19th/20th C. Cadogan Wine Pot – Yixing

Very rare chinese Yixing Cadogan, 19th/20th Century, Relief – Marked – Quality!
The production of Cadogans dates back to the late 17th Century, Kangxi Period, and they have been made to use for wine, filled in from the bottom (Inside is an inverted funnel shaped tube. The wide part of the funnel is part of the base; the small opening is at the top.). That’s the reason why the cadogan needs no lid. Typically modelled as a peach with Copper red and Cobalt blue details. In later times England started to copy the system and used it for tea.
Perfect condition, some wear. A very rare collector piece!

Height: 110 mm
