    A2585414-1C87-4D27-80E6-95551E77F557.jpeg I was in an antique store today and spotted this. I have a few vintage Japanese cast iron teapots, but they are all glazed on the inside, so no good for boiling water. This one is a bit larger and unglazed, so I can use it on the stovetop.

    It has a fair bit of rust inside, but the iron looks intact underneath. I’ll make restoring it a little weekend project.

    Nice cast iron teapot. Will be nice to see it when you clean it up.
  3. Try the electrolysis method (current) since you can't get inside easily.
  4. Nice find
  5. very cool find.
