Teapot holder

The support is whole. It is hexagonal in shape, with rounded corners. The bottom is flat, the wall low and slightly sloping outwards, while the top is flat and wide. The underside of the base is free of glaze ; The decoration is molded and hand-painted in blue and gold; it is geometric in style. The molded decoration is on the wall. It is decorated with a vertical motif, wider at the corners; this motif takes the form of grooves on the inside, and rounded ribs on the outside. The painted decoration is applied to the upper half of the wall, below the inner edge, and to the top; it has been applied under and over glaze. The inner rim is adorned with a wide band painted dark blue. This blue background is enhanced by gold-painted decoration: a chain of alternating horizontal ovals and lozenges. The ovals feature a solid drop in the center and a three-lobed motif at the base; the lozenges feature a pearl at the base. This chain is set between two gilded lines. The top of the support is covered with gilding, which has been partially erased.
