Written in flowery script on the silver-and-white gift box containing this Platinum Chandeliers teapot are the words "Belle Epoque," a reference to the lavish high-society years of pre-World War I Edwardian England. Rosanna graces her new tableware with the chandelier to symbolize the elegance, romance, and grand parties of that era. And, because the chandelier is making a popular comeback in the 21st century, the design fits right in with today's casual yet chic styling.
An elaborate candelabra-style chandelier hand-rendered in real platinum adorns the side of the white porcelain teapot. Lit candles and beaded swags detailed in the image seem to gleam with the sparkle of crystal. Formed in an upright oval shape completed by the curve of the lid, the teapot features a small, high spout and a simple loop handle. When filled, the teapot holds 60 ounces of brewed tea, more than enough to satisfy four guests with the matching teacups. Add the dessert plates, each of which is different, and the party can really begin. Due to the platinum trim, the teapot should not be used in the microwave and is best cared for when washed by hand. The oval hatbox in which the pot comes is so elegant that further wrapping as a gift is not required. --Ann Bieri
