Very small teapot in brownish-red stoneware, perforated inside and with a loop handle. It has a later silver spout and a silver lid with a wooden knop, probably added in the early 18th century to replace broken parts. Chinese characters are inscribed on the base and the teapot has an old handwritten label: 'Teapot belonging to Sir Walter Raleigh and brought to England by him.' The date of the teapot does not support this statement. It is the sort of teapot sent with consignments of tea for sampling it and made in red stoneware in Yixing.
