  This curious barrel is in fact a tea cozy, it used to have an insulated lining but unfortunately that has been lost together with the teapot.  It is more common to see the ratten and the wooden version than the metal version.

This is an octagon tea cosy, it was used as an insulator for the ceramic and metal teapot which gets cold easily.  The small opening is for the spout of the teapot while the top two is for the lock of the lid which unfortunately is missing.

Here is another tea cozy made with bamboo.
