Teapot by Nin’ami Dohachi (1783-1855)
L.: 11,5 cm – H.: 10 cm – Ø.: 9 cm
Nin’ami Dohachi II (born Mitsutoki Takahashi; 1783-1855) established his first kiln in Fushimi, near Kyoto, in 1842 and specialized in ceramics for the tea ceremony. He was one of the three major potters of that time along with Kinkodō Kamesuke (1765-1837) and Aoki Mokubei (1767-1833). He became famous for his work in stoneware and porcelain. This teapot copies the traditional Chinese Yixing teapots. A similar work is at the Kyoto National Museum.
