Dragonware Teapot Satsuma Moriage Hand Painted Japan
This fabulous hand-painted made in Japan Dragonware teapot has amazingly detailed art of an emperor and empress on the body. In addition, the lid sports a gold dragon head, and the spout and handle are styled as a dragon! The maker's mark is the double T in diamonds of the Japanese company called The Takito Company (1880-1948). This item most likely dates from the 1920s - 1940s.
