Boston Chinese Tea from The Imposter Series © 2005 Harriete Estel Berman

Teapot constructed using pre-printed steel from recycled tin containers (printed with blue and white reproductions of Chinese blue and white porcelain); 10k gold and aluminum rivets; stainless steel screws.

Chinese blue and white porcelain has been replicated for many centuries. Europeans began making copies soon after the first rare examples arrived from China. In the present day, the familiar blue and white patterns are even printed on tin cans and trays such as the Boston Chinese Tea tins used to make this teapot. One of the steel trays used to make this teapot had this interesting statement printed on the bottom:

“This lithography on metal reproduction is so faithfully rendered that it has the
appearance of real porcelain, and has won several awards for its quality.”
