Subject:ID request marked Kyusu Japanese teapot
Posted By: Myra Wed, Jan 23, 2019 IP: 77.170.249.58

Hello there, I picked up this Kyusu teapot which raises some questions regarding the mark, style and age... I've tried Google picture search, but still no idea. In case you do, would you please enlighten me.Thank you in advance!
Best regards,
Myra

1. Not Japanese
2. Not a teapot

This is a typical Chinese Medicine pot.

Chinese herbal m├ędecine is boiled for a long time, then poured out into a bowl to be drunk.

The offset spout allows the liquor to be drawn off the herbs without requiring a strainer.
