Subject:Chinese Teapot Animals and Cloisonne
Posted By: Brenda Mon, Oct 16, 2017 IP: 98.114.221.30

Am hoping to find out information about this teapot I recently purchased. It is about 5" tall and has cloisonne, jade like rings and pewter animals attached. It is marked on the bottom. I have different opinions as to it's age, being told it was old and also being told it is new. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

The animals are creatures associated with the Chinese zodiac, which should total a dozen if all there. The jade-like material may be glass, judging by the swirls. Date of manufacture in China, circa mid-20th century or somewhat later. Here's a link to a similar pot with different colored rings, indicated to be agate.

Best regards,

Thank you so much for your reply. It saved me a good amount of money and educated me as well.

Often they're listed as "Tibetan," and feature dyed agate bracelets for the stone parts as well as cast metal animals. Some of the lids look as if they could have started out life atop a tea canister or something and were left over when the factory closed. Perhaps someone is soldering stuff together?
