The delicate hand crave pattern highlighted this art piece, and made it as collectible work!
The origin of the tetsubin is still not completely clear. The Japanese illustrated Encyclopedia of the war of tea, states that the tetsubin developed from a water kettle named tedorigama, and was already being used in the sixteenth century. During the 19th century, tetsubin designs went from uncomplicated iron kettles to elaborately engraved works of art, a tetsubin’s degree of finishing indicated the wealth of its owner, and thus could be appreciated as a status symbol.
