- Gilded Unicorn Teapot and Dainty Cups
- c. 1980
- Matte-glazed redware; metallic paint
- Made in Japan

This teapot kind of blows our mind(s): it's got a unicorn frolicking in a sea of stars, set on a matte-glazed black finish that feels really, really pleasant (like those nice books you sometimes get, the suede-y feeling ones). The two little cups even have a delicate band of gold paint along the inner rims, and the teapot lid handle is gold-toned as well. Please note that these ain't no ordinary unicorns, but the bearded sorts lost to time. We love them.

Built-in tea strainer. Completely and unprecedentedly sturdy bamboo handle.

(Approximate -- you try measuring a rounded object. Really. Get out an apple.)

Length: 6" / 15.25 cm
Height: 5 1/8" / 13 cm, excluding handle

Height: 3" / 7.5 cm
Diameter: 2.5" / 6.25 cm

Excellent. No noted flaws. Someone must not have used this, which strikes us as downright silly unless it was for splendid display (or owned by a pegasus, who wouldn't display their arch rival's beauty. [and they don't have hands.])
