Description Small teapot of copper with silver. The body of the teapot is constructed of copper and the handle, spout, waist, and lid are silver. The handle is formed from what appears to be the head and body of a dragon or a sort of scaly fish. It appears to be swallowing the upper section of the handle. The spout appears to also be the head of some beast swallowing the curve of the remaining section of spout. The lid is attached to the body of the teapot by a short chain. The handle for the lid comes to a point, as if a flame. There are "S" shaped spiral patterns circling the collar and waist of the teapot.
