Stunning Qianlong C1760 Chinese Export Blue & White Coffee Pot Silver Shape Nr:
This exceptional Qianlong period coffee pot stands 250mm (10'') high x 125mm (5'') across the base x 200mm (8'') handle to spout. It dates to the mid 1700's and was produced for export to the rich western markets copying the shape of sterling silver coffee pots popular in Europe at the time, with a similar conical form and handle and spout shape. It is fantastically decorated with a large bouquet of peonies chrysanthemums and prunus to either side separated by an intricate boarder with floral vignettes which runs up the body and over the lid, high lighted with gilding to the high points on the handle the spout and the nop. It is in exceptional condition with no damage or restoration of any kind and the finest quality piece of 18thc Chinese Export ware I have ever come across.
This is part of a small private collection of Chinese porcelain I am selling this week all of which was purchased some years ago from a top London Oriental dealer. Collection of any piece is always welcome I am situated on the outskirts of north London Junction 18 M25.
International buyers are always welcome to this sale. F.M.O.C. Postage outside the United Kingdom is at cost please contact me for a quote. Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice. Sadly due to Italy terrible postage system I will always add £5.15 to the postage charge for signed for to ensure it reaches the customer. If the item is listed as " Signed for " on the postage then obviously it is already included. If you have any questions please do contact me. All our items are extremely well packed to save them from damage in transit. If you are not happy with this article based on the information I have provided I will always happily refund minus the cost of any postage. All purchases must be piad for within 3 days of the end of the sale unless agreed otherwise.
