This matt black teapot is made of new bone china and has a relief structure. It can hold up to 1.7 litres, enough to have a nice cup of tea with a small group of people. The lid is held into place using two slots that lock when the lid is turned, so it stays firmly in place as you pour. Tips for the safe use of the teapot and for pouring without spilling: Never fill the pot more than 2 to 3 cm below the rim. Pour gently, but do keep pouring. When pouring, tilt the pot sufficiently to allow the tea to flow freely and not spill and drip down the spout.
