If this guy looks a little familiar it might be because he is very similar to one that I posted here. I was surprised to get an email from a man named Stan who lives in Ohio . He was doing a little research on Occupied Japan teapots and found his way to my blog where I featured that last little guy. Stan recently lost his wife and is in the process of downsizing in preparation for a move to a smaller place and is trying to get rid of a few items that he no longer needs. One of those items is this fabulous teapot which belonged to his mother and father and he was looking to get rid of it. About 15 emails went back and forth between us , a price was agreed upon and Stan sent this beauty on its way to me. Isn’t the internet a wonderful thing???
