    This teapot is 6.25" long x 3.88" high x 3.25" wide. I found one exactly like this one on ebay that had the original documentation with it. Yixing teapots are a "thing", which I did not know until today. I bought it because it is kinda cool. This was a $1 thrift shop find today, one of four really cool things I found at four thrift shops.

      @Newfld - Thanks, Jenni! He was too good to pass up.

      @Toyrebel - Right? There are small holes so the steam comes out of his mouth and nostrils.

      I took a few days off from collecting to withdraw from my collecting habit a bit and then relapsed and found four really cool things yesterday for well under $10 total. Sigh.

      Thanks for loving my Yixing teapot!
