One of the primary locations for intricate and beautiful metalwork is the city of Marrakech in Morocco. This delightful red ceramic decorative teapot is an example of the skills found in this culturally historic location. Made from a combination of ceramics and metals, the red teapot highlights the melting pot of culture and geography that fills this fascinating region of North Africa. The color red is highly symbolic, for Marrakech is known as the “Red City”.

The old city of Marrakech is probably most well known for its crafts and markets, including the biggest in Morocco. It also has the busiest square in the whole of Africa, known as the Djemaa el Fna. Here, objects from across Africa, the Arab World and Europe are bought and sold. This beautiful red decorative Moroccan teapot is just such an item that would be found in the square and across the cities of Marrakech and Casablanca.

If you have a fondness for Arab, Islamic or African culture and art, then this red decorative teapot will make a wonderful addition to your home. The metalwork shows abstract shapes and foliage designs which are common in crafts of Berber origin. Small scratches as well as unique variations add character to the teapot. The delicate curving forms of the teapot handles are rather like the plumes of fine smoke that arise from the iconic shishas (hookah)
