This is a rare Japanese tetsubin iron kettle / teapot with something to celebrate with the art of tea tradition. The tetsubin has a nice well proportion shape with an archaic facial design with 4 inverted petal shapes surround the iron kettle body couple with some miniature elephant ear lopes on both sides of the kettle, possibly used for hanging the kettle over an open furnace. The tetsubin has a nice border design as a collar for the lid. It comes with a nice dark olive brown bronze lid with an old chrysanthemum knob as the finial & an iron handle. The tetsubin was used at some point in the past with some rust inside as commensurate with its age. It's in excellent condition as evidence of its previous owner.
