This teapot is definitely one of a kind! Whimsical and large, this teapot is 100% handmade of clay. It is unglazed and creatively detailed with dragons on the lid and body. Besides, there are delicate bamboo on the handle and spout. The dragon in Chinese Zodiac is believed to have good leadership. Also, dragon represents the Chinese emperors.
This treasure can be perceived as Yixing-inspired clay teapot, which reportedly was first handcrafted by a monk during Zhengde Emperor (1502-1521) in Yixing, China. This precious item is a must-have collectible for antique and pottery enthusiasts because of its whimsicality.
Just for fun, you may brew Oolong or Black tea (or any other of your desire) in this pot for 3 small cups, just like the ancient times.
