Livistonia cheninsis is the commonest form of Chinese palm, the leaves of which are made into fans. The Chinese think very highly of a retired life, free from the turmoil of this world, and this state of existence is generally indicated by a figure sitting under a palm tree, a cottage perched on the top of a high cliff, in the recesses of a mountain or hidden from view by an overhanging rock. A fan made out of a palm leaf is generally carried by retired scholars and by alchemists. The body of this dark zisha globular teapot is truncated at the back from which emerges a semicircular handle. The side of the teapot is decorated with a spray of palm leaves in light sand-colored zisha.  There is a tiny ladybug on the lid.
