Vintage Chinese Ceramic Clay Cooking or Medicine Tea Pot Side Handle

Sorry, this item has sold.
Ask a question

This is truly a unique find, at least in North America! In China however they are commonly used as clay cooking pots or as medicine pots to brew herbs. The handle and spout are on the same side of the pot unlike your typical tea pot. This piece is in excellent vintage condition with no chips or cracks. The last photo shows a defect in the glaze that occurred when it was made. It is very lucky to find that this piece still has its matching lid as most of these that are this age are missing the lid. The front handle features what we believe to be Chinese lettering and there is a stamp with Chinese lettering on the bottom.

A great piece for any collectors of tea pots/kettles or Chinese antiques. If you're like us and you would have no idea what to cook in such a thing it would look really great as a vessel for flower arrangements!

The pot measure 6 1/2 inches high and the diameter of the top opening is approx 6 inches. It weighs just over 3 lbs. Has a chip on the rim of lid only damage.
