Chinese mid 18th century c1750 Export ware Famille Rose Porcelain tea pot made during the reign of the Emperor Qianlong at the kilns in Jingdezhen.
Painted with 'The Valentine Pattern'. Each side painted with two doves perched on a quiver of arrows in front of an 'alter of love' and a bread fruit plant.  The pattern is repeated around the knop on the lid.
Although there are variations of the pattern they are all based on an armorial dinner service ordered in 1743 by Lord Anson based on a drawing by Sir Piercy Brett who accompanied him on a journey around the world  1740-1744  The design became popular during the 18th century.
See R.Kerr and L E Mengoni Chinese Export Ceramics 2011 p.65 fig84 for a saucer of the same pattern  See Christies Interior Sale London 28th November 2017  lot 27
