I can't help it. I love 60s kitsch. This charming little pot is full of it. You can see how it's all crazed. It has been well-loved and well-used. I paid $4 for it at a thrift shop. It still has the little silver sticker on the bottom proclaiming that it was made in Japan for the Fredericks Company, San Francisco. It makes a decent pot of tea, but, due to the crazing, it doesn't keep it hot for long.
