Shudei Tebineri teapot with Flower lid by Koei

An elaborate vintage teapot (unused) with many fine details. This was old stock of a ceramic merchant. The hand-forming method (Tebineri) used to make this teapot resembles that of Sugie Mokusen and Morita Hakuyu.
The potter's mark very probably reads Koei, but there is no additional information on the craftsman.
Built-in ceramic filter

Handcrafted in Tokoname, Japan by Koei

A slight wobble can be discerned when pressing down on the outer edges of the rim, but it is not evident when placing one's finger closer to the center (as for pouring) and does not interfere with the teapot's function in any way.
