How about a bit of a pirate teapot today?? Or at least I think it is a pirate. Or maybe a hobo. What do you think? An Ebay purchase and for those who wonder it is stamped with Made in Occupied Japan which is a collectible for a group of interested folks. This is what I found on that subject from the antiques website Kovalls.com:
Occupied Japan was printed on pottery, porcelain, toys, and other goods made during the American occupation of Japan after World War II, from 1947 to 1952. Collectors now search for these pieces. The items were made for export. Many pieces with the Occupied Japan mark were inexpensive novelties for dime stores, while others were copies of European ceramic favorites.
I just liked it and thought it was a good one for my collection. What do you think?
Windblown as usual on the back deck!
