Composed of 99% tin and 1% silver, Japanese pewter is sublimely suited for the consumption of food and beverages, not only enduringly retaining its radiance, form, and luster but also its complexity - all without the necessity of frequent polishing as with silver.
This sophisticated remake of a timeless Chinese teapot form is deftly crafted from pewter and features a bamboo-wrapped handle and knob bound with a meandering vine. It pours out a perfect stream of tea with an integrated strainer, and its generous size makes it ideal for large-leaf varieties, oolongs, and Puerh teas. Famously, pewter's renowned purity enhances the full flavor of tea, and this masterpiece of a teapot stands as a testament to this unique taste. An exquisite find, painstakingly detailed and rarely seen.
