Large Japanese or Chinese Clay Teapot Yokode Kyusu Side Handle Original Vintage
Yokode Kyusu Japanese Teapot. It very large and heavy and measures 11x 6.75"h overall It has black glaze that is reminds me of hematite. It is marked on the bottom. The unusual placement of the handle allows for swirling the pot for the best steeping results without bitterness and also allows for the pouring of every drop. In Japanese, these are typically called "yokode kyusu", for side handled tea pot.
The condition is excellent although the bottom shows some stains.
