I couldn’t find much on the designer of this unique looking stoneware teapot by Robert Steven Witkoff.  I believe this is from the early 1970’s. I did find one listing with the same teapot in it’s original box, which had  ‘Ellipse’ as the manufacturer.  I also found other Witkoff teapot listings which named International Silver as the manufacturer.  He also designed for Omni Ware.  All items appear to have been made in Japan.

The style is definitely modernist. The lid is set off center (to one side of the handle). The teapot measures about 9″x7″x61/4″.  The colour is more like the slightly yellower beige tone of the 2nd and 3rd photos but not as dark.

This will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.

Priced at $55

Please note this item is now SOLD!!!
