A teapot for everyday elegance, this porcelain teapot displays hand-painted blue motifs: swimming fish on the lid and one side, while they arc around a blooming lotus on the other. Its shape is a subtle variation on the classic design: the sides curve downward on an ovoid slope, the wider base providing stability, a greater space for the fish to gambol, and a larger capacity than it at first appears. This makes it ideal for two to three tea drinkers—or one with a hearty appetite.
Practical details include a straight spout for easy pouring, a built-in strainer, and a washable ribbon to keep the lid together with the body. Made of sturdy porcelain, it is easy to thoroughly clean and therefore use with whichever tea strikes your fancy.
