Glazed ceramic teapot has visual characteristics of coral. (A) The spherical chamber contains a cylindrical hole through the center and rests on a rounded base. The teapot itself is angled downward, with the spout of the teapot low on the body and the semi-circle cylindrical handle positioned high on the opposite side. (B) A small spherical lid fits like a stopper into a circular opening on the chamber. The surface of the teapot has a coral-like texture with an overall green and brown surface. Purple, gold, blue, black and white "corals" appear in several places over the surface.
