Hard paste porcelain teapot

Hard paste porcelain teapot decorated with a scene of two doves perched on a quiver before an altar bearing two pierced hearts. There is no makers' mark but identified as made in Jingdezhen, Jiangxi Province, China about 1762. The scene on this teapot is referred to as the Valentine pattern; the technique of painting in thin black lines with red and gilt details is borrowed from an 18th century German style named schwarzlot, better known on Chinese porcelain for its use in religious subjects, rather than the romantic one shown here.
