My new-to-me repro French Veilleuse-Théières [pronounced VAY-yerz - TAT-ee-yair] arrived in the mail and I'm very pleased with my $29 purchase [$41 with shipping]. Veilleuse means night light or side light and Théières means teapot.
Next was the decision of where to display it. My living room built-ins are maxed out but I managed to find a spot above the piano, next to the figurines. I needed a good excuse to climb up there to dust anyway.
I was so intrigued I did a Google search and found there's more than one floating teapot fountain in the world. One exists in Temple City, California.
