Bombè Teapot, des. Carlo Alessi


By: Alessi

Designed by Carlo Alessi in 1945, the Bombè range is something of a design classic. Not only are the designs beautiful and elegant, but the functional aspect of each item in the collection is second to none. The pour from this teapot means no spills and the bakelite handle is both practical as well as complimenting the stainless steel with a mirror finish. This is truly the perfect teapot. 

Other items in the range also available form saltsmillshop include the milk jug, sugar bowl, coffee pot and tray. 

  • 18/10 stainless steel and bakelite
  • Capacity: approx 1 qt 9 3/4 oz
  • Dimensions: approx H6" x L9" x W5"
