With a 3,500-year-long history, Wuhan is one of the most ancient and populated metropolitan cities in China which has long been renowned as a center for the arts. It is therefore unsurprising that the city's rich culture would be interpreted and introduced to the Western world, such is the case with the Wuhan series by Kaiser.
This particular piece is a rare find, as the coffee pot from this series very rarely appears on the market, let alone in such superb condition. The coffee pot's form is hexagonal and finished with a similarly angular brass handle. The pot and its warming stand is decorated with the Kaiser Wuhan print, the design of which mimics the Chinese Cloisonné enamel ornamentation.
This set is ideal for enthusiasts who appreciate taking the time to enjoy their coffee drinking and when not in use, the aesthetics of this set make it great for display.
