One of a three-piece tea service, the tea pot is a small silver container with a lobed shape, a simple spout, a bone handle positioned at a right angle to the spout, and a flat, hinged lid with a bone finial. Both the finial and the handle are carved into four lobes to match the body of the pot. The surface of the silver is not glassy-smooth; it has a hand-worked, hammered surface. The overall design impression is of satisfying geometric proportions with a slightly organic feel.
