This is a pair of teapots I bought more than a year ago, but because I was traveling for much of the summer, the box was never opened and remained in the attic until a few days ago, when I dug it out and opened it in anticipation of my move back to Hong Kong. I must say that opening it is quite a thrill — not least because I feel like I bought something recently, but since I paid for it so long ago, it’s as if I bought something anew. The pair of pots are obviously well loved, one a little more than the other. They are small, and are of exactly the style that I prefer – rustic, simple, and functional. A little cleaning and they will be good as new, and ready for use. Until I finish moving though, back in the boxes they go.
The lens cap gives you a good idea how big (or, rather, small) they are.
