Thé avec un serpent?



Petit Palais


In the main gallery of Petit Palais is this unusual teapot by Léon Kann (1859-1925).
An open-mouthed serpent bursts from a metal gourd 
and is ready to strike!


Now, would you care for lemon or milk 
with that tea?

Never seen one like that, Genie! I think I'll take my tea from a good old china pot!

I picture the evil queen in Snow White pouring her tea from this pot. At the same time, I think it's gorgeous!
