This silver teapot was in the popular museum exhibition The Artful Teapot that toured the United States and Canada from 2002 – 2006. The Banners’ fascinating design with its sinuous forms made this teapot a “star” of the show.  Melon is on the cover of the book that accompanied the teapot exhibition.
