Subject:Kutani teapot
Posted By: Adriano Thu, May 31, 2018 IP: 82.50.79.169

I think this is a Japanese Kutani style teapot.
I would like to have help comments on mark and period.

Thank you and best regards,
Adriano.

Indeed a Kutani teapot, marked Ito イト in Katakana characters.
Written like this, it is - according the Japanese Kanji Name Dictionary - a female first name.
Probably the mark of a small family workshop from the 1930's.
Regards,
Martin.
