Not what expected.. Discovered not a tea pot as we know it, but a cast-iron tea steeper, for which one must separately heat water for the tea, then run hot water into the "teapot" to heat the cast iron so that the tea you eventually make will stay hot a bit longer.
ProsAttractive, exactly as pictured. Useful as an ornament.
ConsCan't apply heat to it, per info card attached to item. Would have been nice to know this before purchase.
