This exquisite antique Japanese yokode kyusu (side handle) teapot belonged to my dear grandmother, before she passed it on to me. Believed to be from the Taisho Era. It features the hand painting and carving of a master artisan, and the crackle glaze found on Kyo Satsuma pottery of this period. It is in excellent antique condition. The hole at the top of the lid has always been there, and is commonly found on similar antique lid knobs. The interior of the pot has small holes at the spout to serve as strainer. There is no marking on the bottom of this teapot, but I do have pics of the bottom, and many others.
Holds approx. 1-2/3 cups.
4" (10cm) tall from bottom to tip of lid.
4-1/2" (11cm) across at widest point of pot (not including handle).
2-1/4" (6cm) length of handle only.
3-1/8" (8cm) across top opening.
2-1/2" (6.5cm) across the bottom.
Thanks for looking!
