This is a very beautiful teapot that has been hand carved out of wood. It is Cherrywood and has a gorgeous patina. This teapot has been used and it is in excellent condition with some generalized wear. The handle and spout have been skillfully worked into the wrapped wood body. It measures 3.5 inches in height x 6.75 inches in length from handle to spout. This teapot dates from the earlier to mid 20th century. The artist mark is on the bottom.
