This is one of my latest acquisitions. I couldn't resist it, although damaged. It is so sweet and I loved the handle modelled as a little hut and Chinese decoration with dragon like beasts. I have tried to research its origins but it is still a complete puzzle to me! It has a likeness to Wedgwood English Jasperware with the applied decoration and I know early Wedgwood did produce redware items. However, Wedgwood did mark almost all items so perhaps it's not even English? Unusually, it has a metal filter inside which I have not come across before. I know many people collect teapots and I am hoping someone may have come across this model or similar before. I would be most grateful for any of your opinions as I'm stumped.
