Jingdezhen Celadon Gourd-Shaped Teapot Set Handmade with Beads and Thread
This elegant teapot set comes from Jingdezhen, the porcelain capital of the world. The teapot is shaped like a gourd, representing longevity and the power of healing in Chinese culture. The glaze is high quality celadon that shines through on the tea table. You can compare this teapot to the more commonly available celadon teapots produced in Dehua, Guangdong province to appreciate its superior quality. The expertly hand-knotted thread tied on the top of the lid acts to prevent the lid from falling off and breaking. The two small blue and white porcelain beads attached at the end of the decorative lower threads adds a nice touch of flair to the teapot, as well as the stone bead at the top. With its built-in porcelain strainer, pouring is very easy and smooth. A great versatile teapot for your everyday tea service.
The set includes one teapot and two cups.
Teapot: 300ml / 10.1oz
