This handmade Yixing Lotus Leaf Teapot continues a centuries-old craft. Fashioned from uniquely hued Yixing clay, deemed by aficionados to create the best pot for brewing, it will patina over time, enhancing the taste and fragrance of the tea it steeps. The personal “chop” mark on each piece is the artisan’s mark of skill and pride. Made in China. Handsome cloth-covered box. 4.5"h. x 6.5"l. x 6"w.
Recalls the eight Yixing teapots in the collections of our Freer Gallery of Art.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
