Angel's Comment:

With charm of the traditional appearance, this teapot is not only suitable for daily usage but also for collection.

This Ding styled Yixing teapot presents a feeling of solemnity, tradition and mystery. Its feature is that the square shape is hidden in the round shape, so it appears bright and hard. The bronze cultural elements of this teapot are a very important part of Chinese traditional culture.

The Bronze Age is the second principal period of the three-age Stone-Bronze-Iron system. Chinese Bronze Age is the "period between about 2000 BC and 771 BC". In this period, People made many bronze artifacts, such as the numerous large sacrificial tripods known as “Ding” (鼎 in chinese).
