Shao Yufen's (邵毓芬) Aladin lamp

There is a teapot in Alans Museum that resemble the Aladin's lamp of the stories of the Arabian nights. The design is interesting in a way it is dominated by the outline of the shape. The handle is designed in a very unusual way, totally out of the ordinary. One has to be extra careful when making tea with this teapot as the cover is unusually tall and heavy.
 It may topple over and ruin your dream.

The teapot is made by Shao Yufen, currently a craftsmaster of Yixing.
