Japanese Mingei Copper Tea Kettle - Repousse
Wonderfully rustic copper tea kettle totally handmade with superb repousse hammered design. It looks rustic until you examine the piece closely and see the extremely fine hammering that was require to shape the pot and the design. The interior appears to be lined with tin or some other white metal. Double bale handles that swing away. Very good condition with fine old patina. Four character signature on base. Measures 9" high with handles upright - 6 1/2" diameter in the main body - 1 3/4" lidded spout - 4" bottom diameter. I date this from mid to late Meiji - probably turn of the century. A wonderful addition to any Mingei collection.
