An old squirrel pot

Here is an old pot of made in the 70s.

It is a classic shape of  a section of a bamboo with some leaves attached to the body. There is a squirrel on the lid which serves the function of a knob. Teapots of that era usually come with ball filters for filtering tea into the cups.

It is a low cost version of high end teapots designed by craftsmasters. An excellent piece of art.
