The famous tea pot by Wilhelm Wagenfeld has been designed at the Bauhaus in 1931 and it is among the design classics of modernity. The handmade parts of the tea pot are marked by the characteristic forms and the best glass-making crafts.
With the Wagenfeld tea pot of the Wilhelm Wagenfeld edition Jenaer Glas presents a genuine design classic outside of international museums. The tea pot is part of the tea service that has been designed in the early 1930s at the Bauhaus.
80 years after its development the tea pot is still an outstanding example of modern design. Its corpus resembles an elastic glass bubble that is slightly deformed by its own weight. The lid, muzzle and handle are developing from there as if constitutional and organic. The pieces are made from heat-resistant borosilicate glass and each one is unique. They are marked by a simple and functional design.
The Bauhaus design tea pot of the Wagenfeld tea service with the index number 61 is heat-resistant and suitable for dish-washing and microwave.
