Offered for sale is a beautifully decorated porcelain Chinese Export Mandarin Palette Teapot circa 1760 - 1780. This teapot was crafted during the Qianlong period of Chinese porcelain manufacture (1736 - 1795). In wonderful condition for its age, the teapot is heavily decorated with the same typical Mandarin Palette figured central motif on each side, and it retains a good bit of its gilt decoration throughout. Each figure is beautifully wrought. The shape of the pot and form of the handle are typical of this period in Chinese porcelain manufacture. The teapot body measures 3 7/8" H x 4 1/2" wide across its body, and 7 1/8" from spout tip to handle edge. There is no evidence of repair or restoration to the teapot, but the lid has been professionally restored along one edge. As can be seen in the photo's, there is significant wear to the gold along the handle, and some wear to the gold along the teapot spout. The gold on the lid knop is also worn. The figures and all other decoration on the pot are in very good to excellent condition, with remnants of gold on the headdresses of the female figures. (All weight and dimension information is approximate, but as close as I can get to actual measurements.) Additional pictures are available upon request.
