Durable for everyday use and can go in the dishwasher, freezer, and microwave.

This traditionally shaped, 40-ounce teapot, sits low with a full, round body resting on a footed base. One side features a sturdy, arched handle for comfort and control while a curved pouring spout sits opposite. The pattern’s white background carries a soft grayish hue and provides a beautiful contrast to its deep blue imagery. Depictions of trees, houses, bridges, and boats nestled in a charming Chinese landscape surround the pot’s belly while an intricately detailed geometric pattern outlines the opening. Thanks to glossy surfaces and a touch of traditional elegance, this piece easily transitions to formal settings. And for those who prefer a highly coordinated table, a broad selection of matching dinnerware and accessories are available for purchase. — Amy Arnold
