Vintage Currier & Ives water heater has various names - hot pot, tea pot, water heater. The previous owner used it to boil water for her tea. Pot still works: I have tested it. Marked Made in Japan. Pot stands about 6.5 inches tall, including the lid. The front of the pot shows a lovely winter scene, back is plain blue.
I've found three flaws:
A.)the spout has very tiny chip in the inside about 0.25" long
B.)there is a hairline crack to the inside where lid fits in
C.)the lid itself has a small nick on the portion of the lid which goes into the pot, measuring about 1/8th of an inch long.
Otherwise very good vintage condition.
The bottom shows normal wear, as seen in last picture.
