A Chinese blue and white 'Europa and the bull' silver-mounted coffee pot, Kangxi

756

H.: 30,5 cm

Condition: (UV-checked)
- The porcelain generally in excellent condition, with a negligible faint tension line visible where the upper connection between body and spout is attached to the body.
- A spot of glaze loss just below the flower-shaped silver on the lid, probably due to the silver-mounting.
- The silver marked on the inside of the lid. The chain that originally connected the handle, lid and spout, is loose but present. The left leaf - looking from the handle's side - with two indentations.
