This is a well-made teapot with some nice areas of color flashing from the kiln fire. The clay is slightly grainy and has a very light metallic sheen on the surface of the clay. The spout and handle are ‘pinched’ on which is an interesting look. Mimeo has fit the teapot with a clay ball strainer.
This is a handmade item – slight variations in the painting, colors, tooling, patterning and kiln effects of Chinese and Japanese tea wares are to be expected. We have carefully photographed this item as best as possible – please be aware that different device screens can render colors and subtle tones slightly differently.
