Default Earliest kyusu in a movie

I say Kurosawa's The Bad Sleep Well from 1960 last weekend on TCM.
There is a scene where a lady makes tea in a kyusu and pours into a
cup for a visitor. As I noted before there have to be right and left
handed kyusus. This movie is about corporate corruption between
private and public enterprises. The whistle blower is killed in the
end hence the title. I recently saw his 1952 Ikiru also on TCM where
a dying public servant tries to make good. I thought the drunken
funeral wake a classic. Nothing changes and if it does somebody takes
credit who doesnt deserve it.

That's a totally great movie, but I somehow doubt it's the first time a
kyusu was shown on film. The Japanese film industry had been active for
decades by then, after all.

Its the earliest period piece Ive seen one used. I dont doubt it was
used earlier in their movies. I thought the 1952 Ikiru about
entrenched bureaucracy a little more interesting. Especially of the
criticism on how that mentality with their war planning.
