This was an opportunity and I would definitely make enquiry on price, etc. Fortunately, it was not that expensive so I bought it.
This teapot belongs to the type of teapots made by joining segments of clay together. The segments are separated by glooves that bring out the shape of the pot. It is elegant and well made. When I pour tea out from the pot, tea just flows out from the sprout without wetting the pot.
A similar teapot made in Qing Dynasty is now on display in a museum in the United States. It was made in such perfection that it is a delight to its owner.

I have other teapots made in this manner. Their artistic forms are just good for tea drinkers to admire.
