Since its opening, the Met has commissioned experienced artisans to create detailed reproductions of art and other decorative items in their collections that are true to the originals. The sale of these items has helped finance the Met's mission throughout the years.
This teapot was created by artisans of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and has mark, M.M.S. engraved on the bottom.
The natural off white or cream bisque unglazes porcelain teapot is decorated with intertwining branches of mistletoe and oak with acorns in embossed or bas relief.
