This teapot was inspired by the story of Cinderella and is one of a kind. It illustrates the carriage from a pumpkin and the lost slipper. It is hand carved and hand painted with care. It is sturdy and it has some weight to it, but not too much. It is a must for the fan of the story or a teapot collector. The glazes are mostly a matte finish, except for the shoe, that really pops with a gloss glaze. It is not glazed inside, meant for home decor, decoration. It can be glazed upon request.
