This is a Japanese Satsuma miniature teapot. The decorator is Kinkozan, or an artist affiliated with the potter. The teapot has a confirmed Kinkozan mark in gold on the underside, but the date is undetermined. Since we know there was no Kinkozan after 1927, then we can assume the tiny teapot is within the Meiji or Taisho Periods.

Several different Satsuma potters made and decorated miniatures. The tiny teapots are in demand today and increasingly difficult to find.

This pot is 1 ¾” high and 4 ½” wide. There is a woven reed handle that is original to the pot and it connects to the pot with two metal hooks at each end.

The shape is squat with 3 nubbins of feet on the bottom and a tiny upcurving spout.

The decoration is one of people in a garden with background colors of green and blue, perhaps for water and land, and some mountains in the distance. The band is around the bulging middle and two more on the lid. Satsuma is entirely hand painted and quite exceptionally well done.

There is gold trim on the spout, finial and where the handle hooks in to the pot.

The pottery is a light cream with a fine tight crackle.

There are no nicks, chips or cracks.
