A fantastic pair of Chinese export porcelain Kangxi period footed teapots, hand-painted in underglaze blue and of unusual paneled and dome shaped-form, each panel decorated with peonies and rockwork, the motif continuing onto the covers, along with swirling clouds on the handles and spouts. The form likely based upon Chinese wine pots of the period. Each pot measuring 7″ x 5 1/2″. One pot with restoration to the knop, and a chip filled on the spout and neck, otherwise remarkably good condition; the other pot also in good condition with no apparent restoration. Several small glaze losses to the handles of both – commensurate with age and to be expected on Kangxi pieces. Circa 1690. The best pair of Kangxi period we’ve ever enjoyed having. Circa 1690.
