fine flattened gourd shaped pewter encased Yixing teapot embellished with celadon jade handle, spout

central interior bearing the seal mark of a Yixing pottery master (as showed in the last picture) active during the Daoguang period.
This very fine teapot with it’s elegant shape
has the natural charm which was highly praised by the literati circles of the
Conditions: Celadon jade fittings are in very
good conditions, the pewter body is in very fine conditions and still has the hundreds years of
untouched and unpolished patina on it, the
inner Yixing clay shell it’s cracked only in
the part of the spout area , as clearly showed and visible
in the pic n°11.
Date and personal
conclusions: I can easily date it from the Daoguang period and
made from around the 1820
–1830’s. Because of some well cared particulars of the jade
fittings like for the handle part that complements the teapot with the gently curved shape of the raising
sides ‘’which are not as straight sided as the later examples of hybrid pewter
encased yixing teapots made from the 1840’s and so forth’’.
Measurements: The teapot measures 15 centimeters
of largeness from the jade spout to the jade handle and 11,5
centimeters in height.
