Antique Cobalt Blue Floral Imari Decorated Wide Base Teapot 18th/19th Century For Sale
For your consideration is this lovely Imari style floral decorated Teapot. I can't say if it is Japanese or Chinese. It was recently purchased at a high end sale in Charleston SC. The base is 6 inches x 4 1/2 inches. From the tip of the spout to the back of the handle is 10 inches. The opening at top has inner diameter of 4 inches by 2 3/4 inches. (all measurements approximate) . The only issue is a flat slicelike chip on the tip of the spout which I have tried to show in the photos. There is some age discoloration on the handleor it may be some worn off color since there is a couple of cobalt blue dots. It is similar on the cover tip where you can still see some gold gilt. If you are an international buyer shipping will be by priority international.
