Description:   Canton Tea, Coffee and Chocolate Pots make up a confusing world in defining the many, many variations to be found. Therefore, we have listed all of them under “Teapots”. Designations that have come into common useage such as “Censor”, “Dome-Top”, “Lighthouse” will be used as well as physical descriptions such as “Drum Shape”, “Pear Shape” and “Conical Shape”. In buying any teapot make sure the top fits well.

These two squat teapots have curved spouts, large loop handles and ball knobs. They are distinguished by their flared rims. They have round bottom rims and glazed bottoms. The tops are seated in inset rims. The smaller pot has 5 flags for decoration. Because of the plain loop handles, ball knobs and flags on one, we date them from the late19th Century to early 20th Century.
