Antique Qing Chinese Export Yixing Stoneware Pewter Mount Dragon Teapot 17cm 7
This antique teapot dates to the late 19th century Qing Dynasty. There are no China or Made in China marks. There is a makers seal on the base which is unfamiliar to me and some Chinese characters in the centre of the lid. The teapot is made of red / terracotta coloured Yixing stoneware with pewter mounts in the form of dragons. There are fine copper details to the spout. The handles are made of brass attached by nicely modelled hands to copper mounting rings. The teapot has a patina consistent with age and much usage. There is small nibble / dent out of the pewter at the edge of the base. I have tilted the pot in photo 4 to make this obvious. The pewter mounts are finely made and in good antique condition. There is no knob on the lid (by design). There are 2 hoop handles attached the main body of the pot. It would have originally been part of a full Yixing pewter tea set made for the European (mainly British) export market. This is a rare and beautiful original antique object. The teapot measures 17cm (6.7) in diameter. 21cm (8) acros the spout. It stands 10.5cm (4.1) tall. It weighs 1040g(2lbs 5ozs). It holds about 900ml (1.5 UK pints) Please study the photos. Please check out my other items. I also have a Black Yixing applied pewter tea tray and water pot of a similar pattern listed. I usually have other Chinese and other Asian antiques for sale. I DO NOT OFFER COLLECTION IN PERSON. Please also check out the items in the INTERIOR DESIGN category of my shop. This item is in the category “Antiques\Asian/Oriental Antiques\Chinese\Other Chinese”.

Antique Chinese Export Silver Cigarette Case Heavily Embossed Dragon Monogrammed
Antique Chinese Export Silver Cigarette Case Initials on Back Heavily Embossed Dragon on Front. For Your Antique Silver Box or Cigarette Case Collection-CigaretteCaseChina1. This is an antique and rather substantial Chinese export silver cigarette case. The case depicts a heavily embossed dragon on the lid with highly detailed features. The dragon, which is wrapped around shows a large mouth and eyes as well as three-toe claws. The back of the box has the initials ELC engraved in a very decorative pattern with the number 15/117 under it. The interior of the box has a gilt finish and an elastic to hold the cigarettes in place. The piece has a pressure operated locking/opening mechanism with a thumb piece. This is a rather heavy piece (weighs 88 grams or about 2.8 troy ounces of silver) which feels great in your hand. The piece is marked on the inside of the thumb tab in unrecognizable markings (Chinese mark) which we attempt to show in the last photo. A very well made antique with a great design. Please view photos as they are part and parcel of our description. Date: Uncertain but most likely mid to late 1800s. The piece was made in China. Size: Measures 3″ by 2 1/2″ and is 1/2 deep. The piece weighs about 88 grams or a bit over 2.8 troy ounces. Marks: Has undecipherable marking on the inside on the thumb tab mechanism (see last photo). Distinguishing Characteristics – Most Interesting About The Piece: A beautiful and most interesting antique with a great design that is very well done. This is a piece worthy of a spot in your collection of silver boxes or cigarette cases. Condition: The box is in excellent condition with no breaks, or repairs. The hinge is intact and works very well so does the locking mechanism and the box closes tightly. The exterior has general surface scratches and a few minor dings, but nothing of concern. The interior retains quite a bit of its original gilt but shows some staining. The original elastic is a bit frayed as can be seen in the photos. Be that as it may the piece is in great condition for being over 100 years old and having been in use for probably a long time. The piece could probably use a good cleaning, which we leave to the new owner. Be that as it may this is a great antique which very seldom comes by in such a good shape. Please see photos for additional condition information. We guarantee the authenticity, description and condition of the items we sell. Note, packages going overseas can take as long as 3 to 4 weeks to reach their destination, so please be patient and allow sufficient time for your item to reach you.
