Antique Japanese Ginbin Silver Tetsubin, Meiji

Lovely Japanese silver teapot in unusual persimmon (“kaki”) form; globular body with a domed cover; swing strap handle. The base is stamped with the impressed “jungin” or “jyun-gin” (pure silver mark which signifies 950 parts silver) above a four character impressed seal mark which reads “Miyamoto Kinsei" (made by Miyamoto). Meiji period, ca. 1900-1920.

The spectacle of deep-orange persimmon heavy on the bough is one of Japan’s great visual delights. The dried fruits of the kaki are strung together on a thin bamboo stalk and offered to the domestic gods at the New Year.

CONDITION is excellent with only minor surface wear consistent with age and usage.

DIMENSIONS: 3 ½” (9 cm) high to top of pot; 6 ¾” (17.2 cm) high to top of handle; 4” (10.2 cm) diameter.

WEIGHT: 8.94 ounces (254 grams).
