This is a small pottery Japanese Satsuma teapot, dating to the 19th century, the Meiji Period, circa 1880. I am told the signature is Kinkozan, and the teapot is Awata Kyoto Ware.

The pot is about 4 ½” high and 6” wide from handle-to-spout.

The pot has the Satsuma cream crackle glaze. On the sides are hand enameled painted flowers, leaves and stems. The lid and ends show hand painted flying insects, butterflies and dragonflies.

Satsuma ware has a crackle glaze that is a glaze with crazing; the crazing is dark with age on this pot. There is a small flake under the spout at the tip. There is an irregular line under the glaze near where the spout joins the body of the teapot. The glaze shows imperfections and irregularities, dark marks and such, typical for Satsuma pottery from this time period.

The material composition is pottery or faience, and sometimes it is referred to as soft paste porcelain.

To the left of the handle, towards the bottom, are red hand painted letters in Japanese, which is the signature for Kinkozan. On the underside is an impressed Japanese maker’s mark, showing that this is Awata Kyoto ware, and some penciled marks. The bottom underside is grimy with age.
