Of especially nice form, this pair of Chinese export octagonally-shaped teapots is decorated with panels of landscape views alternating with flowering peony branches beneath a lotus petal form collar, the paneled decoration continuing to the faceted domed cover. The pots’ diminutive 5″ size reflects the staggering cost of tea in this period and what a status symbol it was to serve it. The form almost certainly after silver shapes of the time. Both pieces in great condition, Kangxi period, circa 1700-1720.
