Composed of 99% tin and 1% silver, Japanese pewter is sublimely suited for the consumption of food and beverages, not only enduringly retaining its radiance, form, and luster but also its complexity - all without the necessity of frequent polishing as with silver.
This sizable teapot from Japan boasts a distinctively smoky oxidized coloring, while its bamboo-wrapped handle and knob are adorned with a wisteria tie. Yokote pays homage to the familiar igloos found in Hokkaido, reflecting the unique shape of this dobin. Displaying a weathered charm, it is reminiscent of the teapots used by farmers long ago as they toiled in the fields, developing dents and scratches over time as a testament to its enduring use.
