Footnotes

  • The seal reads Lu'an probably refers to the designation of a unknown potter. The name of the carver incised on another teapot may refer to the Qing dynasty scholar, Qu Yingshao (1778-1849) who was known for commissioning teapots from preferred potters from Yixing. For another teapot possibly made by one of his commissioned potter, see lot 502.
