A porcelain hot pot painted in colorful double swan on stone amidst beautiful peonies
Antique porcelain hot pot or ‘yello’ in Thai was decorated throughout with meticulous motifs. Its rounded edge was very distinguished in tricolor Chinese key pattern on a turquoise background. The lid was firmly attached with handles typically made in brass. Double swan is a symbol of true love and honesty. Swan and peony represent perfect couple life and success. This upcoming Grand Auction is pleased to present a set of 4 antique pots in different sizes ranged from the smallest to biggest ones. Created as a reproduction of actual hot pot used, the different amusing dimensions and styles symbolize prosperity, wealth, and civilized manner of Thais in ancient time were only to showcase rather than to perform an actual function.
