Rare Dryden Original teapot hand thrown by Nugyen Loi, who came to the U.S. from Saigon in 1974. He worked at Dryden from 1975-1982.
There are not many examples of teapots made by Loi. This one is a blend of aqua, turquoise and touches of lavender. The bottom half of the teapot is decorated with spiral rows of squares cut away from the body of the teapot.
The teapot is about 5.75 inches tall and 8.5 inches wide, handle to spout.
No chips, cracks or restorations. Some of the cutout squares do not have color between the squares (see examples in photos). This is not a flaw, it happened during the application of color and the firing process.
