LargeMediumSmallPrinter
< 1 >
Kiln: Yixing Kilns
Period: Qing dynasty (1644-1911)
Dimensions: overall height: 14.5 cm, mouth diameter: 8.2 cm, foot diameter: 7.3 cm

The teapot has a round body, a swelling stomach and a flat bottom. Above the cover is a loop-shaped tri-handle, tactfully bowing in a natural way. The round lid slightly bulges with a knob imitating a Taihu stone. The yellow clay is close-textured. The handle fits into the body so well that the teapot is characterized by liveliness and artistic balance. 

  After the mid Qing dynasty most of the single loop-handled teapots were changed to double-handled which have greater stability and artistry.
