A charming Yongzheng period Chinese export porcelain tea pot hand-painted in Famille Rose enamels with classic images of roosters amongst rockwork and peonies, the tea pot itself modeled as a lotus with a ribbed ‘petal’ lower body supported upon a base of delicate stems, buds, and leaves, the ribbed petal motif continued on the cover as well.  Measuring 4 1/2″ tall x 6 ” wide.  Some restoration to part of the base and edge of the cover, otherwise, in good condition, a fine early piece, circa 1735.
