Description from Mariage Frères
The design of this black cast-iron teapot, hand-crafted according to Japanese tradition, makes it a classical piece. The number of points that appear in relief is exactly the same in each ring, and the circles formed represent the sky.
The teapot has got an enamelled interior.
The color black, symbol of fertility, of abundant earth, and clouds filled with rain, is highly prized in Asia.
