'2. Teapot and Stand About 1984 This design reinvents the shape of a teapot and is more practical than it as first appears. The pointed base ensures it is always replaced in its stand after pouring, becaue it cannot be placed anywhere else. The stand also protects the surface below from the heat of the pot.
