Handmade Japanese Nanbu Tetsubin, Unlined Cast Iron Water Kettle
Capture the spirit of Japanese tea preparation with this magnificent Tetsubin from Mizusawa. An alluring raised dragon surrounded by clouds coils around one side of this kettle with the remaining exterior richly decorated in a dark, charcoal brown citrus peal texture giving it a delightful organic appearance. The sturdy handle is also lightly textured and a closed flower bud finial knob sits atop the lid.
This Nanbu Tetsubin iron water kettle was crafted in Mizusawa, Iwate Prefecture, Japan and is marked by the artist under the spout.
**Note - the handle does NOT fold down.**
This water kettle does not have an enamel interior coating (unlined) and does not have a strainer basket. You may use this Tetsubin kettle to boil water. In fact, I recommend it! Care instructions will be included with every Tetsubin.
From Mizusawa, Iwate Prefecture
Made in Japan.
