This teapot is modeled as a pair of clowns with one sitting on top of the other who is upside down. Each wears ballooning pants and long clown shoes. The teapot is the bottom clown wearing pink pants, who is doing a headstand w his legs over his head. His black shoes form the teapot handle. The top clown’s feet make the teapot spout, and the rest of him make the teapot lid.
