The peony is the image of grace and generosity, as well as a symbol of good fortune and wealth. The artisan painted an elegant peony by subtle strokes on the blank body of the teapot. The peony is painted in the Lingnan School style of flower-and-bird painting, blending guangcai techniques with the lines and shapes of Chinese painting. The rim of the lid is decorated with lifelike butterflies in flight.
