This is a simple, small teapot. The top portion is glazed a shiny dark brown, with a lighter, medium brown stripe below, and then the rest of the body is a light beige brown color. It is not signed or marked. My guess is that it was made in Japan. The teapot is 7 3/4" tip to handle, 6 1/4" tall with the lid. It is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. MBR.
