I think that this piece, although damaged (see detail of handle and spout), and repaired, is gorgeous. I have exhausted every other (free) resource and have had no luck finding out exactly what I have here. I normally don't pay $50 for something I can't identify, but I had a good feeling about this and really liked the piece. I am relatively certain that it is neither Chinese nor Japanese, notwithstanding the clear Oriental influence. I believe it might be English, and I think it might be old. If you have any ideas, I would be greatful to know your thoughts. Thanks in advance to all who help.
