This Teapot/Stand combo by Betina Piqueras has a lot going for it. It has a certain elegance, and some functionality, especially for those with wrist and arm problems. It can really make pouring easy. 

But of course I can't talk about many things without talking about the shortcomings. It seems to me that the Teapot must be perfectly balanced from back to front. That is difficult, but not impossible. If the handle and the spout have equal weight distribution then the pot will work well. Yet, This design does not take into account...the motion of the ocean, as it were. There is no locking mechanism. Odd that. 

If the pot is that well balanced, then a small amount of sway, say a kick to the table, can send the beverage spilling all over the tea party. 

Bad times...
