Three accompany

This is another interesting shape of Yixing teapot, a round body standing on three legs. Any teapot design with legs has to be carefully crafted so that the pot will be balance aesthetically on its legs.

These three teapots were made by Pan Xijuen, Prof Pan Chun Fan's nephew. Miss Pan was fortunate to have an uncle both famous and talented to learn the art of teapot making.

The teapots were acquired while Prof Pan was in Singapore holding his personal teapot exhibition in the 1900s. Again when the three pots were put together, one can feel a sense of achievement, the ability to put together a family of pots of the same nature.
Three accompany, its fun
