single hole
12cm from tip of spout to back handle
7cm from bottom to top of lid

I like its simple form

This is clearly a R.O.C. period Zini or Hongni clay teapot. What I am not sure about, is the nature of the decorations. Is it white glaze?

These are lovely pots. I particularly like the decorations, almost has a golden glow to it, contrast nicely with the zini. Thanks for sharing.
