What a beautiful and unusual hard paste porcelain teapot this is. T"he pot is made in Seto, Japan, and the date is the early 1880s. I am told by an expert that "the NPSK mark indicates it was decorated by Nagoya Shippo Kaisha and is a very early 1880's example of Nippon."

The porcelain pot has three feet, a large round body, and an overhead branching handle. The pot is 8" high to the top of the handle and 7 ¾" wide from spout-to-handle.

The decoration is hand painted with a lot of red and gold, even on the feet, spout, handle and finial. There are flower shapes colored in pink, yellow and pale green with white enamel in raised relief.

There are no chips, nicks, cracks or crazing.

The green mark has the letters NPSK inside a wreath with a crown overhead.
