Antique Chinese pewter teapot/ewer with six painted panels protected by glass, three on each face.
Beautifully engraved with traditional Chinese motifs, floral decoration on the handle side. A bird depicted on the handle, a dragon on the spout side, and a Foo dog on the top of the lid.
The paintings present scenes with people on a day by day life and are strongly discolored especially on one face.
Standing on four small feet which are engraved as well.
I've noticed some Chinese inscriptions at the bottom, I suppose is the maker's mark.
A lovely display item overall with a nice patina.
Dimensions: ca, 30 cm to the Foo dog finial, and is quite heavy weighing 1450 grams.
Viewing/collection possible in Yeovil, Somerset. Hermes delivery sign-in/tracked all around the UK, delivery is included in the item price to avoid making two payments. International buyers, please ask for the shipping costs!
