Description

An elegantly paneled style with leaf embossing at the handle terminals and surrounding the rosebud finial.  Chinese Shape is found decorated with Tea Leaf or Teaberry motifs; even with gold lustre motifs on lighter weight bodies.  Some examples by Anthony Shaw actually are in lustre band only and may be either panelled or smooth.  Red Cliff copied the lines and the distinctive Shaw tea leaf in their mid-20th century reproduction line.

Registered in 1856.
