Shipwreck Teapot, China, 1654-1722

This teapot was recovered from a shipwreck off the coast of Porto in Portugal. Look inside the teapot to view the remnants of barnacles from its prolonged time on the ocean floor. Made in China, the blue under-glaze design of willow plants and a water buffalo has become matte due to saltwater removing the glaze.
