Color

Pure silver teapot, with a magnificent cloisonné pattern of a sapphire blue dragon on a sunny yellow dotted with pastel stylized clouds. Nice size for such a precious object, rounded highlighting the dragon which spreads over the entire width of the body of the teapot. Sturdy, plump spout and silver interior are smooth, polished, reflective. The whole thing is gleaming, punctuated by a large sandalwood bead like the icing on a cake, but what a cake! 

 The dragon has been an auspicious sign and a symbol of prosperity, luck, wisdom and power since ancient times.

Reminder: Cloisonne is a technique where thin strips, here of silver, are firmly welded to the tire of the teapot, to form the pattern, in which the ceramic is applied. Here we have a doubly precious teapot, it is silver and it is cloisonné.

999 sterling silver, silver has many health benefits, but we can remember that it has anti-bacterial power. The ancients used it to preserve food.

Teapot size: 420ml weight 365g or 385g.

Origin: Hunan Yongxing, Chinese silver capital.
