Set against a bright white porcelain background, the crisp blue time honored pattern tells a wonderful love story.
The 3-cup (18 oz) teapot comes with a white porcelain infuser.
Originating in the eighteenth century, it tells the love story of Koong tse, a rich man's daughter, and Chang, a clerk. Koong tse's father forbids the marriage of Koongt tse and Chang, and betroths her to a rich mandarin. The lovers flee to an island, where they live happily. When Chang becomes a published writer, the mandarin finds the couple and Chang is killed. In despair, Koong tse commits suicide. The souls of the lovers are depicted as two immortal doves.

||Great size for one person
|This little teapot is not only pretty, it is just the right size for one person to serve themselves several cups of tea while knitting or reading or watching TV. I just love it!|
