The classic Salam teapot was first created in 1957 by celebrated French silversmith Guy Degrenne, who was inspired by the ancient tradition of Bedouin teapots and the welcoming hospitality of sharing a freshly brewed pot. The elegant design combines a porcelain body with an insulated stainless-steel cover that helps keep tea deliciously warm. Made of white porcelain with a removable insulated 18/10 stainless-steel cover. Felt-lined steel cover helps keep tea at ideal serving temperature for over an hour-twice as long as traditional teapots. Removable aluminum strainer inside holds loose tea leaves; brew tea to your desired strength and then lift out the strainer. 6-cup cap. Hand-wash. Made in France.
