Melon Teapot LG
Size: H14cm (H18cm including handle) x 20.5cm x Dia 17cm x 150cL
The Melon teapot is an exact replica of Yong Koon’s original, albeit updated with a mod con or two; the sweeping brass handles are wrapped in rattan to insulate against any heat transfer, and the entire teapot is given a brilliant finish to show off its lush, Rubenesque curves. Includes a fitted sieve.
To acknowledge provenance, the 015111R teapot is stamped with Yong Koon’s circa 1885 - 1930 Yuhe Zuxi hallmark. Yuhe translates as brand name Jade Harmony, whilst Zuxi, attesting to superior material content, means pure tin.
Space is available for personalisation.
