Handmade Gift Ideas: Byzantium Tea Set

The scratching technique used for making this tea set is not suitable for large-scale production. It is an author technique of decorating ceramic items by scratching the contours with a needle on wet enamel and then filling the inside of the contours with paints and color enamels. After gilding, the tea set undergoes an additional firing to make the drawing rub-proof. 

This tea set consists of:  1 teapot (1000 ml), 1 sugar bowl (400 ml), 2 tea cups (185 ml each) with saucers (D=120 mm each).
