Provenance

A private American collection, Boston.

Description

This teapot is notable for the purity of the white stone and unusual design of Buddhist lions carved in high relief. While no other example appears to have been decorated with this motif, it is characteristically Qing in its auspicious motifs, such as the ruyi handle and playful Buddhist lions, and fine craftsmanship.
