The Product: Blue and white hand-painted Thai pottery teapot
A blue and white hand-painted Thai pottery teapot. This decorative item would make a quirky and charming addition to any kind of kitchen display. We love the typical Thai patterning and especially the lotus flower decoration.
Thailand is known for its pottery traditions, especially in the north of the country. From simple, blue and white rice bowls and everyday tableware to ornate and gilded Benjarong for regal, fine dining with all manner of shapes, colours and glazes in between. There are often common themes in the hand-painted décor including swimming fish motifs or the life-affirming purity and spiritual awakening that is represented by the lotus flower – as seen on this teapot.
