A rare opportunity to acquire a stunning antique art deco Majolica Basket-weave Teapot c1920-1940.
This is a beautifully proportioned and balanced teapot in the classic art deco shape which would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
The backstamp is quite rubbed (please see image in the photo section), however Jan-Erik Nilsson of Gotheborg identifies it as “K”, Hand painted Japan (unknow ); K could possibly stand for Kyoto with a tentative date of 1920-40″. With this in mind and based on similar designs with the striped artwork on the handle, we have attributed the teapot to MITSUI BUSSAN KAISHA with the ‘K’ of the mark possibly standing for KAISHA.
- Tip of spout to edge of handle: 23cm
- Width across top: 16cm
- Height from base to top of knob on lid: 15.5cm
