CHINESE TEAPOTS AND RELATED WARES have inspired many collections. The variety of forms are numerous, and their decorations are among the most diverse in all of Chinese decorative arts. These include: floral motifs, trees, landscapes, animals, birds, figures, and various combinations of these.
From the outset, tea in the West was a luxury item. Therefore, it is not surprising that anything related to it became something to make special and beautiful.
We include some very special examples in this mailing. The detailed painting on the cups and saucers shown below, and creamer illustrated above is remarkable. The teapots are each a classic example in form and matched with superb decoration.
We would be delighted to discuss any or more of these with you and welcome your inquiries.
