Bronze Teapot from China
This charming pumpkin-shaped teapot is finely crafted of bronze in two colors. The five-sided lid is a different color than the dark bronze of the beautifully patinated body. The design incorporates whimsical details such as a vine-like handle, leaves with elegant tendrils, and the stem as the lid handle; a maker’s mark chop is affixed on one side. This is probably from the early 20th century and was made in China. It would be a very fine addition to a teapot collection- either yours or as a special gift.
