This is the most wonderful tea pot. It is unique in the fact that it winds up on the bottom of it and plays a tune. I have never seen one like this. It is the Moss Rose style of pattern. The pot is very big 10 x 8 and is in perfect condition and it says Japan on the bottom. It has lots of gold etching on it which makes it very beautiful. A real find for the tea pot collector. They won't have another one like it.
