This pot was made to be exported in the Dao Guang Period (1822-1850). The paste (clay) is an interesting two tone mixture of light purple and greyish clay. This pot was never used and said to be found at an old kiln sight. This pot was quite desired when it was made (and now). Larger size holding more than 500 ml also shows its export status. Not many survived in this perfect condition. A real beauty. Seals on the bottom of the pot show a simple flower pattern and Yixing, China.
