The pear-shaped Yixing teapot is a classic style, aptly named for its pear-like form. With a rounded, swollen belly and domed lid that meets the body seamlessly, it embodies a harmonious roundness. Its graceful shape is both simple and elegant.
This style became popular during the Qianlong era of the Qing dynasty and was beloved by tea connoisseurs for brewing and savoring tea. In the Minnan region, it was said that no tea lover’s collection was complete without a pear-shaped pot, giving rise to the saying “Without a pear-shaped pot in hand, one cannot speak of tea matters.”
The exquisite miniature pear-shaped pots created by the Yixing master Meng Chen were so admired that they were exported to Japan, where they were treasured. Later, when these pots reached Europe, they had a significant influence on Western teapot design as well.
Thus, from Qing dynasty China to Japan and Europe, the graceful pear form has journeyed through tea culture, cementing its iconic status and name. Wherever it goes, this teapot shape is recognizable as an embodiment of tea drinking elegance.
