Unique Handcrafted Yixing Teapot
This Handcrafted Yixing Teapot is very unique in form. While the oxen form has been depicted on other Yixing teapots, this interpretation is one of a kind. It is enhanced with silver, gold, and copper on nodules that are interspersed over the body. It signed by the artist with a seal mark to the base of the pot, which has been translated to Zhou Xinhua-zhi.
The age of the pot is unknown but there are definite signs of age. The interior does not appear to have been used as a teapot.
There is no damage to the pot. It measures 5.5 inches from snout to tail and is approximately 3 inches tall.
