One-of-a-kind example of hand-painted artisan pottery, this lovingly hand-painted Tea Pot from the Philippines showcases assorted, happy villagers playing music, dancing in the fields, and catching butterflies among a flower garden. The addition of metal filigree in lotus on the lid, and other cultural ornamentation, adds a rare touch of magic to the piece. 

Serve tea like the posh 1700's Europeans, or set it on a shelf among good company for a curated vignette.

 History of Chinoiserie

Traditional and wildly popular since the 1700's, Chinoiserie, or the replicated appearance of Chinese art forms, namely the renowned porcelain blue and white ceramics, have made a statement in households for centuries, though its roots go much farther back than that in the Chinese art forms.

ORIGIN
