Discarded Treasure

Stainless Steel Teapot

On my way out yesterday morning, I spied this teapot abandoned in the trash.  I snatched it up and examined it closely.  It's stainless steel, with heat resistant handles and a little mechanism to keep the lid on when the handle is up.  And it's spotless!  Probably holds two liters.  Well, I couldn't pass it up.  It reminds me of something that would appear in one of the many still lifes I had to draw in any number of drawing classes I have taken.  It also seems like something that would be passed down from generation to generation along the female line.

I can remember my early oil painting days and having to paint a copper teapot similar to that one. Ah, memories.
