This is a mid 20th century Chinese tea pot from the Early Republic. Recently acquired by from a local collector who lived and traveled all over Asia in the 1960's picking up treasures along the way. It is hand thrown and all hand painted in the classic cobalt underglaze. Decorated with traditional stenciled patterns. The foot and mouth are unglazed while the interior is fully glazed.

Having been carefully displayed at an estate for the past 50 years this jar remains in fine condition. No hairlines are detected. Some wear is visible around the mouth and discoloration from early decades of use. There are normal kiln flaws to be expected with these containers like dark spots from kiln ash, smudged paint and pinhole reserves in the glaze. There is no handle just a cord threaded though lugs on four sides.

The jar measure approximately 9" tall and 8" in diameter. Markings: Made in China. A simple and elegant piece of history that's both highly collectible and quite decorative.
