I obtained this from an estate of a collector of Asian artifacts and Chinese works of art
I was told that this is quite unique and rare.....that it is a Yixing Zisha Clay teapot
I can not read Chinese....so I have no idea the story or poem that is hand written in the clay sides of this piece
It is marked with the maker's marks in several places....
Marked inside the lid....
Marked on the base of the teapot...and...
Marked on the base of the teapot handle....
Hand markings in Chinese on both sides of teapot....tell a "story" or "poem"
Lid is beautifully done with a seed or fruit on a stem design
Again....I can not read Chinese nor am I familiar with Zisha Clay teapot maker's marks
This is in excellent condition....the ONLY minor flaw that is there is a very very minor chip to the edge of the teapot lid (see pics)
The teapot itself is in mint condition....there are no breaks of repairs
Measures approx 150mm x 100mm x 90mm
approx 7" L x 4" W x 3.5" H
