From 1969 we have a pottery teapot with bamboo design. The bamboo handle has been wrapped with a pattern to protect the handle. There are some slight imperfections but these were made prior to firing in the knob and on the lid. Interior is clean. I really think that this was used just for decor as it shows no wear and it is very nice just to look at. The pot is 7 inches tall and 8 inches wide measuring from handle to bottom and from the spout to the base.
