That's because it was my first one.
OK, the handle sagged so you have to set the thing
near the edge, giving the handle a little air.
The spout is too low and straight out, so the pot can
really hold only one cup.
There's a dent on the side where a careless thumb
slipped to find a permanent mark.
The lid fits perfectly if you don't rattle it.
But the floating blue is really lovely.

One of my daughters tried to give me money for it -
wouldn't take it for free. She wanted it as a memory.
I told her it would never be for sale because there
was no money that could match my pride in my first
tpot. I didn't need anyone else's opinion on the value
I put on my piece. She treasures the gift and it DOES
go with her dishes.

Marianne. Proost!
