Thrift shops and friends are the best source of teapots. This little teapot is quite unusual and cost a whopping one dollar at the Habitat ReStore in Brevard. It is small but very unique.
The side of the teapot has wha looks like little stones embedded in a little circular hole. That is what I noticed first about the teapot . I am not sure what it means but it struck me as just being an interesting dimension that was added.
Maybe one of my readers will be able to identify what type of leaves these are supposed to be.
It is definitely not the most beautiful teapot but the rawness and rough feel of it made me notice it. Someone made it somewhere sometime and it has a story.
This teapot is a small one and easy to fit in a small spot on my shelf. It would brew a small cup of tea and probably would be best used as a Yixing teapot where one single type of tea is continually brewed to season the pot .
