Thought this was a rather interesting little teapot. I picked it up a couple of weeks ago. It's a hand painted dragon on a round teapot. The spout is the head and the handle is the tail. It has what appears to be a "Qianlong Nian Zhi " or "Qianlong Period Make" mark, probably from the mid to late 20th century say 60's to the 90's. There are various forms of this mark on Gotheborg's site and it seems to contain enough of the characters to ID this piece as fairly new, but it's still interesting.
