It was a clean break on both sides. It was repaired and the repair could have been better because there is some glue showing.But it is not bad. There is a 1" thin fine line on the bottom, and it goes 1/2" up the side of the teapot. You can barely see it on the teapot. The line does not go through to the inside of the teapot. The inside is very clean. This item is in the category "Pottery & Glass\Decorative Cookware, Dinnerware & Serveware\Tea & Coffee Pots".
