Maxey Catalog Number
Described in records as a Chinese blue Flambe tea jug, "yao bien." "Color changes while baking in Textute and signs of age on the porcelain and the quality of the vase bear testimony that this is the correct date." No date listed, other than Manchu (Qing) Dynasty. Accession File states: "Chinese Teapot. Blue flambe-or Yao bien Chinese tea pot, that changes color while baking in the Kiln. Donated by David C. Graham in memory of his wife, Alicia Morey Graham." (11009) This teapot is also made with a special method called Yao bien or Blue flambe, in which the color of the glaze changes as it is being baked in the kiln. The shape is derived from the traditional water-carrying bucket, but the work is probably twentieth century. Qing Dynasty 1644-1911.
