This cherry bark themed Japanese kyusu is about 3" high minus the handle and about 3.25" in diameter minus the spout. It is either new or new old stock, not sure which, is marked and came in the original cardboard box. It weighed in at 1 lb 6.5 ounces. I have not attempted to determine who the maker is yet.
Cherry bark is a very popular medium for tea related paraphernalia like tea scoops and tea caddies and I occasionally see these cherry bark themed iron kyusu and have wanted one. I found a nice one in Japan several weeks ago and it finally arrived yesterday. The seller neglected to mention it came in its original box, a nice surprise. There was this real bright light coming in my windows today and I vaguely remember that it is sometimes like that, but not recently. I may redo the images when we get a less bright day.
