I took this photo a few days ago. The tea set has a neat story to it. It was a gift from a friend, when I completed my MBA. The friend got the tea set from a neighbor. The tea set belonged to the neighbor's mother (she had passed away). The neighbor's father had brought the set to his mother from Asia, when he had served overseas in the military. The set has two tea "bowls," though only 1 is shown here.
The handle on the right is where you hold the tea pot for pouring.
