A superb craftsmanship for this pure silver teapot. Indeed, we observe a double know-how, hammering, shaping and partitioning. The result is a work of art, the enamel of the flowers and butterflies is subtly pigmented in gradation, while the thin partitioning on the hammered silver is clearly visible around the patterns. The smooth handle and spout stand out brilliantly, like the lid button. 

Small reminders: The technique of cloisonné consists in forming the design by welding thin partitions, here of silver. It is then sufficient to fill the cavities formed by the enamel. For the shaping and the hammering of the silver, the craftsman would have needed thousands of hammer blows.

Silver has anti-bacterial properties, the ancients used it for the preservation of foodstuffs. They said water is the mother of tea and the pot the father of tea. But also with silver the water becomes as soft as silk, the tea is improved.
