So ugly that I really love it but I just can't figure out exactly what it's supposed to be and who did it. This is clearly marked "CN" and I have found a Camille Naudot online who's mark looks EXACTLY like this one!! However, all of his work that I could find looks nothing like this at all. This also comes with a set of 4 measuring cups. Really GREAT CONDITION!! I just want to know what it is and who it's by? Any help would be awesome, thanks

I posted in the Unkown category hoping to get some info on this last week. I FINALLY found out what it is. He's called "Chef Flyface!"
Ever heard of the saying "So ugly that it's cute?" This sure fits the bill but I love it. Think these other pieces are measuring cups. They all came together.

    It would scare me to drink from him :-) Wow how unusual to make a teapot so strange . Looks like Walt Disney's ferdinand the bull with a bad attitude ?

    Japan made some figures similar with a bee in nose . The made ugly mens faces a bee in their nose and you used for ash trays . I am thinking it is Japan novelty Tea set :-)

    I FINALLY found out what 'he' is called. His name is "Chef Fly Face" and he's made by Tilsco. That really threw me because the markings were "NC." You are right though, it's from Japan. Very rare to have one in this condition though. It looks like it just came off the shelf. Has a set of 4 measuring cups too. Very odd-it's a tea pot! Thanks for all your comments!
