Yes, that's always the first question I ask. And if the picture of the interior is too dark to tell, I ask if it's enameled. But I'm always amazed at the number of sellers on both Ebay and Etsy who don't answer questions. Not sure how they stay in business. I did have one person say that yes it is watertight, it's made of cast iron! In that vein, I love the looks of the one on Ebay that looks like a wooden bucket with metal straps. Wouldn't want to use it for tea water but it would look cool on top of a wood stove. But in the picture of the bottom, one can see what appear to be two spot welds. Too bad.
Thanks for the two links. I'm on an old-fashioned dial-up modem and it's taking awhile for the chrysanthemum pics to load. But I do see the Kunzan mark. Will check out the other one next.
