This one is a real find! This teapot measures 4-3/4 inches from spout to handle, 3-11/16 inches wide, and just shy of 4 inches tall. There is no lid. I believe this piece to be antique, but I don't know for sure. It came from a collection that included many items that were dated to the late 1800's and early 1900's.
The front portion features a beautiful oriental design with three people, I assume in a rice paddy, with two thatch-topped buildings behind, trees with peach/melon colored flowers and a mountain in the background. The handle has five-spot golden flowers. There was a gold ring around the spout and the top, but both appear to be worn off almost entirely now. The back has a smaller scene of an oriental community near water with more flowering trees. The bottom is stamped with a mark I do not recognize. It may be a Chinese or other oriental symbol. I have been unsuccessful in identifying the mark. There is one crazing line on the bottom near the stamp. Otherwise, this piece has no chips, no cracks, no repairs. It appears to be made of porcelain, and it is very thin (hold it up to light and you can see shadows through it).
