Jim's Gift

This was the last present Jim bought for me, and I think it's beautiful. The spout is nicely shaped, and it doesn't drip when you pour. He thought it was porcelain, but it is creamware. Generally speaking, pottery is better than porcelain for holds the heat better. It's softer and though it will chip, it is less likely to shatter when you rap it sharply against the tap. Which you will do, occasionally.

  1. It is quite beautiful. Any gift from him would be I am sure, and the fact that it was the last one makes it even more special... your upbringing, your love for tea, etc. You and Jim shared such a wonderful love, I am so sorry that it was cut short. ...t
