Antique Japanese cast iron tetsubin (tea kettle), beautiful natural form, cast with signature on body of pot of RYUBUNDO, bronze lid also with signature: "produced by RYUBUNDO", Meiji Period. Two studios exist for Ryubundo. The Honke or main family and Bunke or side family produced different tetsubins. The Honke family typically signs both while the Bunke signs just the lid. It is an additional mark of quality to have the body of the kettle signed. Size: 10 1/2" high x 7 3/4" wide including spout.
