This 7-piece tea set includes one tea pot, one tea pot cover, four tea cups, and one saucer. All the pieces are covered by hand-woven bamboo strips and the exquisite teapot is decorated with two playful pandas eating bamboo. The pandas are not painted on the bamboo cover - rather, they are hand-woven with variegated strips into vivid images.
These elegant porcelain items are covered with patterns and carefully woven with bamboo strands. Only one breed of bamboo is suitable for making the cover. The piece in question must be over 66cm long between two ridges, lack marks or scratches of any kind, and be at least two years of age. The quality of the set is such that 50kg of bamboo can produce only 400 grams of finished bamboo strips.
This unique style of porcelain was developed in Qing Dynasty (over 200 years ago) and was made exclusively for the royal family. The nature of the porcelain and skillful bamboo weave make this a perfect and unique gift from China.
