Presenting a Scrumptiously Sculptured Porcelain Teapot by Franz in the Windswept Beauty design featuring a soft ivory/green base with large lavendar and purple petals of the iris flower sweeping up and out from the teapot's body and acting as finial on the lid. Raised stems and vines wrap gracefully around the body and spout. The celadon green handle is large and graceful.
