Size: 5.5 cm tall, spout to handle max length 11 cm. Condition: Excellent condition, no chips cracks or restoration. This small teapot is made in buff stoneware clay which is unglazed on the underside of the cover and the footrim. The cover and pot and painted with a dark slip to just below the bottom of the handle and spout, and then glazed with a treacle brown glaze, which has fused with the slip to create a lustrous black. The black extends inside the teapot (which has some residue from use!). The spout is trimmed flat (this is covered by glaze so it is not cut down later. The cover is attached to the pot handle with a piece of string. We have not been able to date this teapot with any degree of assurance. Teapots were first introduced by the Chinese in the Yuan Dynasty (14th century) and by the Ming dynasty they were common. Black glazed Chinese ware is usually associated with the Yuan or Song dynasty. The shape of this teapot, as far as we know, suggests a date some time in the early Qing Dynasty, probably 18th century. The labels on both the base and the cover state that this teapot is from the D & S Howlett collection, a very large collection of Chinese pottery.
