Arkhangai /MONTSAME/. A set of intricately detailed dombos (traditional teapot) skillfully crafted by a craftsman named Chavgants from Dalai Choinkhor van khoshuu (old administrative unit) currently being kept at the Ethnographic Museum of Arkhangai aimag.


The two dombos were received by then director of the museum B.Ochirkhuyag  from a person named Gendenbaljir in 1957. After welding copper to make the main body, dragon patterns were embossed on all five of the bands and then coated with silver. The shape and features of the dragon is also fully illustrated on the handle, followed by silver coating once more. 


Originating from the period of 19th to 20th century, the dombo set weighs 2,035 grams.
