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.
