Description

Use this for your afternoon tea, add it to your Occupied Japan collection or use it as a vase to hold a collection of country type flowers.

Due to World War 2, 50% of the items that came from Japan were to be marked Occupied Japan or Made in Occupied Japan. These items were marked and made between 1945-1952. Which means that this charming teapot is at least 62 years old.

The roses are pink in color and have a very vintage feel to them. The leaves are various shades of green and some are accented with yellow. There is gold trim around the opening of the spout, the top rim of the teapot and the knob on the lid.

This is not a reproduction as the mark on the bottom is under the glaze and doesn't come off with nail polish remover. It's only flaw is a small chip on the inside of the lid where it has the rounded area to make sure the lid stays in place.

Condition

There is very minimal wear on the floral transfer decoration or the gold trim. We are unable to find any other chips, cracks or crazing on this piece or any repairs. There is minimal wear on the bottom and is consistent with the age of this piece.

Measurements

 This piece measures approximately 5 inches tall with the lid in place. From the spout to the back of the handle is approximately 9 1/2 inches. The inside opening of the teapot is about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. The base is about 4 inches in diameter.

This is an absolutely charming teapot from Occupied Japan. It is very clean and looks hardly used, the inside is very white and not stained by tea.
