This is a wonderful hand-painted and hot enamel painted porcelain gzhel teapot with a glamorous blue color schemed design on a pure white porcelain base. The teapot is a vase-shaped teapot with unique intricate designs of the flowing blue rose as the centerpiece as each petal blooms outward forming a luscious look with small branches of delicate leaves that circle around the graceful rose. The sides of the teapot are painted in a grid-like pattern trapping the rose in between them. The handle is made in a classic shape with a rich blue outline on the edge for a glam like pop. The lid of this traditional teapot has a wrinkly rich cobalt blue chili pepper resting on its side which gives a soft spicy look. This teapot is fully functional like an ordinary porcelain dish, so you can delightfully enjoy sipping tea through this elegant teapot, it is microwave and dishwasher safe.
