Chinese / willow pattern teapot
My neighbour has asked me to find out about this teapot which has been in the family 70+ years.
I don't know about these things but I can tell it is very old - but is it Chinese, British or what, as it is unmarked.
Brief description - "willow type" pattern (pagodas, bridge, boats). Strap-like handles, strange spout (last inch is narrower that the main spout with a definite ridge!)and the lid has a small air hole / vent and what looks like a speckled mushroom or octopus to lift off the lid.
Because of the rougness of the edges of the handles and the few "chips" along the edge of the pot, I think it has a metal content. Any ideas what the material is?
