Eva Zeisel: Eva Kettle and Pinnacle Tea Set


This fall Eva Zeisel will celebrate her 100th birthday by introducing her first tea kettle design and reissuing her classic Pinnacle Tea Set, designed in 1985 for International China.

As usual her design is ergonomic, graceful, timeless and functional. The stainless steel kettle features a wide base to decrease boiling time, a tilted and curved stay-cool silicone handle, and a seam free body. Collectors take note: The first 550 tea kettles will be numbered.


The Pinnacle Tea Set is as fresh today as it was when it was created in the 1950s. Curvy, sensual and refined, it's available in classic white and, for the first time, in black.


The Eva Kettle and Pinnacle Tea Set from Chantal will be available exclusively at Bloomingdale's in September 2006. The kettle is $80, the tea pot $40, and the sugar and cremer set are $30.
