Porcelain Marks? No drip decanter

by Andrew15_06 » Jan 10th, '13, 05:28

Hi all!

So I have been having quite the time trying to find something even close to this love teapot/decanter that broke on me. It was a downspout, sort of in the shape of an elephants snout if it was lifting up with the top down. The spout sadly broke. I have been looking for something similar and am searching for the possible origin of the pot/decanter to help filter my search.

Any help in any way would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Looks Japanese but really hard to read. In any case, you're not going to re-find this thing using this signature - looks to be a mass market type of item.

I tried searching a bit, but the closest or best I could find was this pot (not teapot) over on Yahoo auctions.

Of course, I was restricting myself to searching for "nasu" (茄子, or ナス), which is the eggplant on the side.

There's always several types of repair options, too..!
