Chinese Teapot

by BILAL

Hello Peter,

I am having this since the last 25 years. It was given to me by a Chinese friend. He had said that it belonged to the later half of 19th Century. It is repaired and all pieces intact. Please give me your opinion regarding its age and origin.
Please look up photobucket.com/Bilal-Khan-2 for more photos of this item.
Regards,
BILAL

Hi again.
I'm afraid I cannot tell you more. There is the name of a female porclain painter, but even my Chinese wife cannot read the bad handwriting.
So, I have to remain with late Qing dynasty. It could also be early 1900s (Qing dynasty ended 1911). Firstly, because this type was not popular before the Guangxu period, around the turn of the century, perhaps. This pot has three holes for the spout. Early porcelain had only one, and the number increased only towards the end of the Qing dynasty.

This is late Qing dynasty "Qianjiang" porcelain.
See https://www.chinese-antique-porcelain.com/qianjiang-porcelain.html
I will see if someone can help me decipher the handwriting. This one is too much for me.
