Hi. I have this really cool teapot with a snake or dragon head with a movable tongue that comes out.
Is this authentic old and valuable?
I would appreciate any information I can get on it.
It has a stamp on the lid. It also has swastika's in the design.
It looks like a toy version of “Yu Hua Long” style teapot. I don’t know enough about cinnabar to comment on the value, but I wouldn’t use it for tea. The outside and inside look like different textures. The 2nd photo looks more like zisha.
