I picked this up today, at first I didn't know what the heck it was until I looked inside and say the dark brown yixing clay on the inside. The enameling threw me off, I've seen many partially enameled pieces but never a fully enameled one, until I searched around on eBay today. Quite an odd form, no?
No marks, but it has a red wax jianding seal on the bottom from the Beijing #1 office, and there's an old export license label that they took off the top and put inside.
Any thoughts on this piece? I'm thinking its Qing dynasty. The form is so weird... Here's another fully enameled one on eBay, has some of the circular designs too:
