The colors are so beautiful on this elegant and gorgeous bone china teapot. Surely will add an air of sophistication to your next afternoon tea party! Gorgeous aqua blue color on the body with small pink rosebuds, violets,and other florals. The pink flowers might be phlox, but I am not sure. In Victorian times violets represented faithfulness and were a very popular flower. The fancy teapot handle, spout, lid and footed base are all trimmed with a gold pinstripe. The maker is Stechcol, marked fine bone china. This lovely teapot has a 5 cup capacity and would make a fabulous gift for any teapot or violet lover. Not microwave safe due to gold trim, Nanalulus recommends hand washing. Be sure to see more of our tea party niceties!
