A very elegant Chinese export porcelain Yongzheng Period teapot with its original hexagonal-shaped stand along with a handled cup all en suite, hand-painted in Famille Rose enamels (developed during this period) with a cockerel and peony design. The cockerel symbolic of both strength and punctuality (as it crows everyday at sunrise) and the peony which is revered as a symbol of beauty and wealth and nobility. The teapot 4 1/2″ tall, the  stand 4 3/4″ across, and the cup 2 1/4″ tall; all pieces in good condition with a great provenance of the Nelson Kline Collection and Santos of London.  Circa 1730.   $4,800.00
