    It is extremely rare to find a teapot with original warming stand. The carved openwork design of the bagua or eight trigrams on the warming stand can be also found a Qing dynasty square teapot with warming stand dated to 1850, from the collection of Yao Shiying, see Liang Baiquan and Gu Jingzhou (ed.), Yixing Purple Clay Ware , Hong Kong, 1990, p.162, pl.72.

    清中期 紫泥加彩花蝶紋暖座式大壺

    器身上為壺,下為座,以壺置於座上,壺、座間子母口相合。壺圓柱身,三彎長流,正耳把,高蓋橋鈕,壺肩及近足處刻如意雲紋一周。座呈圓形,豐肩,肩部鏤梅花孔,下承三獸面足,座兩側塑舖首耳,座壁鏤孔作乾「☰」、兌「☱」、離「☲」、震「☳」、巽「☴」、坎「☵」、艮「☶」、坤「☷」八卦紋飾,以作散熱之需。壺與座通身以粉彩繪牡丹瓜蝶紋,寓意富貴長春,瓜瓞綿綿。整壺設計精巧,彩繪艷麗,壺與座泥質無異,原配一套實為難得。

    此壺曾於2001年4月至9月在布皇家布魯塞爾博物館展出,並在Patrice Valfré著《Yixing: Teapots for Europe》一書中著錄。暖座式壺是宜興紫砂壺式之一,但保留原配一套之傳世品十分稀少,見姚世英藏一件清道光吳月亭製暖座式壺,雖器形呈方形,其暖座上亦有鏤空八卦紋飾,可資參考,梁白泉、顧景舟編,《宜興紫砂》,香港,1990,頁162,圖版72。
