This round sculptural iron teapot was cast in Northern China during the late Qing Dynasty. Earlier teapots were generally large, but connoisseurs eventually discovered that smaller pots, like this one, hold the aroma of tea better and stop the beverage from turning bitter due to over steeping.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
