Poem Teapot

A poem by celebrated Tang Dynasty (618 - 906 A.D.) poet Li Po, Departure
by Bai Di Cheng at Dawn, is etched into the sides of this large square teapot.
The pot is an 18th Century design composed of medium brown zisha. The lid is almost invisible and the handle and spout are ingeniously contained within the confines of the square.
"Departure by Bai Di Cheng
(White Imperial City)at Dawn"

In the bright dawn cloud
I left by the Cheng
A thousand li to Jiangling
Only takes a day
And I heard
Incessant cry of monkeys from the banks
My light barge has passed countless folds of hills.
