The small, unengraved, drum-shaped teapot has a carved ivory C shaped handle mounted in silver sockets attached to the side of the body.  A straight, tapered spout is opposite the handle.  Holes pierced in the teapot side form a strainer for tea leaves at the base of the spout.  The hinged and circular lid fits flush with the top of the teapot.  It has a turned ivory knob attached with a silver post and disk.
