A marvel, this silver teapot. Shaped with such delicacy that the patterns of leaf petals and bird under the flowers seem to have been treated like a painting. The silver, however harshly engraved and hammered, lets us imagine the softness of the pink of the petals and the tender green of the foliage, with a blue-gray background (you see?) every detail is a delight. The smooth, plump spout pops out of that sweet mess. The sandalwood lid knob sits on a delicate pattern, which we perceive the expert engraving. A pleasure for the eyes, for the senses.
The extra silver has a beneficial effect on the water, so the tea. "the water is clean" say the Chinese.
