Banko Teapot, Celadon Glaze & Side Handle, Signed, Meiji Era Japanese Pottery

This is a handsome Meiji Era Banko teapot with side handle. It is unusual for Banko ware, in that it has an all-over external green glaze in imitation of Chinese celadon. As you know, most Banko ware is unglazed. The interior of the teapot is unglazed. The pottery is very thin. It is signed Banko on the base.

Molded motifs of flowers and a lion-like dog (or shi-shi) are applied in relief over the honeycomb molding which extends around the pot. The teapot measures about 5-1/2" wide and 3-1/4" high. The condition is excellent. There is only 1 tiny chip to the spout: see photo. No other chips or cracks. No repairs.
