the design here of a hatted man with cigar may have been replicated many times over the decades by teapot makers; however, this well used example seems to show stronger character in defining the different elements of the face, and hat and with a pair of nicely set glass inlaid eyes.
mold seams are apparent to the base, but i cant find any trace of them for the hat.
hoping to learn more about this one from the experts, and the artist. Regrets that the tiny round seal mark under the lid is hardly legible

Thank you for looking
