Small Antique Japanese Banko Ware Figural Bird Teapot with Wrapped Rattan Handle

About

Charming Japanese Banko ware small figural teapot in the shape of a bird whistling, with wrapped rattan removable handle. In excellent condition with no chips, cracks or chiggers we have found, circa late 19th or early 20th century. Such a precious and lovely little bird! Comprised of the typical Banko ware clay with delicate hand-painted designs in green, brown, blue, yellow and pink. Adorned with flowering plum blossoms. The wrapped rattan or bamboo handle is removable as is typical of these teapots and the lid is oh so small, delicate and fragile. I suspicion that this tiny bird gives a whistle when the water is ready. But I think I would only use this little feathered friend decoratively. You know how some things just feel good in your hands? Well…….this little teapot is one of those things. Make him yours. Teapot: • Height 3.5 inches • Width 7.5 inches • Depth 4 inches • Weight under 1 pound Boxed size: • Height 11 inches • Width 14 inches • Depth 11 inches • Weight 5 pounds.
