This Agano-yaki houhin (handle-less teapot) features a unique pear-shape with a tall flared lip and a narrow spout. Like most houhin, it has a do-ake filter made directly in the wall of the teapot, meaning that no metal comes in contact with the brewing tea.
Agano-yaki (上野焼) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from Fukuchi in Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan. Praised for its elegance and light weight, Agano ware began being produced in the 17th century. Agano ware is famous for its use of enamels over the glaze. The most well-known of these enamels produces a vibrant blue-green/turquoise dripping effect caused by copper oxide in the enamel.
