Teapot has painted detail on each side. The surface of each of the four sides is not flat, sort of concave. The detailing seems like it was etched into the pot. There are plants or maybe even herbs as the subject matter. It measures 7.75 inches wide from the handle to the spout and it is 4.75 inches tall. There is a small chip on the rim of the lid. There is a mark of some kind, and the shapes look Korean.
