This old, black mammy face is a small teapot missing the lid. She is nicely detailed with black skin, curly brown hair and impressive eyes and large lips. The handle looks like a tree branch and the spout looks like some sort of flower. All color is under glaze and the bottom is marked; Made in Japan. It is from the 1930's or 40's. With the lid these sell for $200.00 to $300.00 but perhaps this one would make a nice decorative flower pot.
It measures about 3 1/8" tall and 6 1/8" from handle to spout and is in very nice condition with minimal wear - but no lid. The close-ups point out a stress crack and on the inside rim and a flake off the bottom.
