Tibetan Teapot




This is a teapot that we bought in China. It is apparently made in Tibet. We loved the metal over porcelain look of it. It is quite small too but very well made. I love the little monkey on the top of it.

That is a real treasure.
I love the artwork on things like that. The care in the crafting seems so special.

Oh yes, the teapots all through China, Tibet and Nepal are stunning! I'm glad yours made it back in one piece!

Now that is a teapot of very topical origin at present!!
Great run with the renovations, usually they take twice as long, not a third of the estimate-a useful SIL! Tracey
