      I'm not 100% sure , but I would say it's an antique Yixing teapot. It's hard to tell because it seems like it has been coated with something. Generally this type (I had a similar one) different top and handle , and from what I can see the mark was different , too . But the floral design on the front was quite similar, so I think the actual clay color in this case is a brownish tone. (Zisha clay has a deep purplish tint to it,and it the most sought after). It's probably from the late 1800' or even early possibly. Thanks for sharing!Oh, and you can see loads more buy Googling Yixing Teapot. Or on Wiki Yixing clay teapot
      Good luck!

      And I think the flower is a Peony.Don't use any harsh detergents on it either. These are meant to be aged or seasoned with the old tea remains inside. Just rinse with lukewarm or hot water is fine.
