Three Yixing stoneware teapots and covers
Mid Qing dynasty, signed Shi Xiong Finely potted in the form of a pumpkin with stalk knop, applied with a slightly curved spout and loop handle, together with a cylindrical teapot with tapering neck and incised vine design, and another fluted teapot, the base impressed with a seal mark.

The two-character mark Shixiong appears to be a name of an unrecorded potter, and the seal mark Yiji possibly refers to the workshop.
