A similar teapot is illustrated on a still-life painted by Pieter Gerritsz van Roestraten, Nature morte au service de thé, 17th Century, where Amor is missing. The figure of Amor on this teapot refers to the quality of tea as a love-potion. For similar examples of gold-mounted Yixing teapots, see Patrice Valfré, Yinqing Teapots for Europe, Poligny, 2000, where several examples are discussed. A Yixing teapot from the collection of August the Stong in Dresden mounted similarly with the figure of Amor is illustrated on p. 230, nr. 270. Another one is in the Hong Kong Museum of Art, see p. 213, nr. 189.
The six character mark reads 'Jingxi zhi Li Tingsen', which translates as 'Li Tingsen in Yixing'.
