This pure silver cloisonné tea service begins with the teapot which is crazy, its design is worthy of the thousand and one nights. A mixture of "Cinderella's carriage" and "Aladdin's lamp" due to the more oriental than Asian motifs. The shades of blue are magnificent, supported by a little green and a warm color like points of fire, like the button on the lid topped with a jewel. The smooth and plump silver spout contrasts with the decoration. The teapot is accompanied by a treasure for those who want it: The kettle, bigger, also superbly decorated, the pouring spout on the other hand also decorated, the silver braided handle. Let's not forget the cups as beautiful, generously showing the inner smooth silver.

Cloisonne here majestically illustrates the technique of partitioning with thin welded silver bands, enamel patterns in bright and subtle colors. Quick reminder: “Silver makes water softer, rounder, sweeter, which enhances the taste of tea.
