This Chinese Vintage Porcelain Dragon Mizutsugi Suichu, Water or Tea Pot is about 20 years old. Thought a Japanese name, a mizutsugi suichu is used for both water and tea according to the seller from Japan and the information that t I found. It has a really interesting shape in addition to the round shape, with an elegant slanted shape of the spout and handle. It is hand painted in all underglaze blue. The Chinese five claw dragon is painted all the way around each side of the circle. The unusual painting and glaze done by hand are very beautiful, It has the mark of either the kiln or company on the bottom. It is in excellent condition with no cracks of chips. It is larger than I expected it to be and heavy.
