OK, thanks Cory, I was looking at the photo above and your etsy, but could not match them.

Anyway, they are therefore BOTH spectacular ... the Mrs. agrees!

Very cool tetsubin.... but I admit, the character on the side of the pot is an interesting choice for a tea pot. Any idea why strength/power?

There should be more characters I believe. Are there anymore that aren't seen in the photo?

The other side has a ?tachibana crest? on it and there is some writing on the backside.

Here are a couple shots of the other characters on the pot.

It caught my fancy, with the flower crest on the other side..

"Flower Power" -- I call it my hippy tetsubin. ;)

Huh, I suppose if you read it right to left... that's kind weird, though.

I've got:

念記?新店服呉本山

But to me, 記 looks more like 祀. You'd need 記 for 記念 to mean commemoration....

呉服 are dry-goods... which I suppose could include kimono...

I'm curious -- did TokyoB happen to mention why it's read right to left? Japanese script is usually read left to right when horizontal.

My wife translated it. She is fluent in Chinese and Japanese. Tried reading it both ways. Right to Left is more traditional (ancient) I believe. MarshalN agreed with translation and gave some additional details (we did this on the chat yesterday). Older form of word for Kimono is used. Specifically commerates the construction of the new store. The store is still in operation in Hiroshima. Marshal found their current website.

That's a beautiful cup. It looks very much like a Han Dynasty Chinese teabowl. The teabowl would be larger, of course. I like it very much.
