Chinese Imari porcelain ribbed melon or pumpkin shaped teapot painted under glaze blue & iron red enamel & gilded Water Lily pattern Kangxi Qing 1710


A Chinese Imari export porcelain pumpkin or melon shaped ribbed teapot decorated with a hand painted floral and grasses water lily pattern, in iron red enamel and gilding, on an under-glaze blue design.  There is decoration on the body, lid, spout and handle.

This small bulbous bodied ribbed teapot is sat on a short round foot-rim and has a narrow straight spout as well as a large plain round sectioned looped handle. The ribbed domed lid has a small ball knob handle. 

It dates to circa 1710, from the reign of the Emperor Kangxi  - 康熙帝 (1661-1722) in the Qing dynasty 清代.

It is in excellent antique condition without chips cracks nor restoration. There is a sound internal firing tear to the joint of the top and bottom sections of the body and some fritting to the body. The lid is original but is a loose fit. There is a slight rock to the teapot from a warped foot rim. This is a most attractive item to add to any collection of  late 17th to early 18th century antique Chinese Imari porcelain.
