Alans Museum has a teapot of a similar design made in the 1980s. It has a small ball filter (like golf ball) typical of the teapots made for export to the Japanese market. The teapot is purplish brown in colour with the name Li Juen engraved at the inside of the cover. There are two smaller version accompanying the big one in the photo below.
