Tea drinking has been an integral part of Chinese culture for centuries, resulting in a wide range of social customs and material traditions. In addition to tea leaves, water, and heat, the art of drinking tea (chayi) calls for a variety of teaware and utensils - both practical and decorative.

This rounded teapot dates to the early 20th century and is densely decorated with opaque overglaze enamels in a pastel palette of pink, creme and turquoise. Framed by several decorative borders, the sides are painted with stylized floral motifs and a scholar seated beneath a pine tree.
