Re: Show Off Your Chinese Teaware

firehorse: any chance you can put the photos somewhere that will allow you to link to them directly? photobucket, flickr, and other free services will allow this.

Re: Show Off Your Chinese Teaware

according to http://tw.myblog.yahoo.com/lhp1139/arti … &fid=6

'green egg sticker' was used during 77~82, Zao Qi Hu (early period pot, before 85).

So then it should be either made earlier than 90's, or new one in early fashion??

Re: Show Off Your Chinese Teaware

I've lurked around here for a while, picking up some very useful information for buying yixing. Well, I finally have something "worth" showing on this thread...

From http://www.nadacha.co.uk/, a 80 ml Zi Ni Long Dan, made with clay from the early 90s, IIRC. Pour is medium-slow, but it's worth dealing with
http://i492.photobucket.com/albums/rr282/Maitre_tea/DSCF1793.jpg

From http://houdeasianart.com/, a 100 ml Sand Blended Zhu Ni, from the late 70s/early 80s, IIRC. It has very thick walls, and a very thick base as well. I'm going to be using it with medium/light roast yancha. The blended sand, which increases porosity (?), should round out some of the roast while preserving most of the tea's flavor/aroma. Chop is fairly interesting as well...maybe chrl42 will have something to say about it

2 pots are very pretty, and 2nd pot looks Zhuni + Hongni

its stamp (deer) I have the similar one, bottom circle lines indicate its trimmed by bamboo tool but it could also be of potter-wheel, inside pics are more important

Clay type: Medium Fired Zi Ni
- 120-125 ml
- 80s
- Medium-Thick walls
- Tea Gallery
- juvenile (6-9 year) sheng
- the secondary seal (the horizontal, longer length one) suggests this pot be used with sheng, so maybe because of that I think it does well with young sheng. Regardless, I like the results from this pot. Since these photos have been taken, the pot has been taking up a nice shine...evidence that this pot was destined to be used with young sheng.

Re: Show Off Your Chinese Teaware

Got a new yixing today, and only reaffirmed how much I want to learn Chinese, as it came with what I think is a Cert of Authenticity book/catalog of the artists works.  I assume it is directly tied to the artists as at least tree of the chops on my pot match up with the chops showin in the back of the book.

It is supposedly Zhu ni clay, but I think we all know how a lot of things claim to be zhu ni clay.

I got it from formerly Kung Fu Tea Arts, which is now going by the new name Chinese Cha Dao.  Though sadly I think he only had one, or I bought the last one.

Two 70s/80s Yi Xing pots. Both have got the very generic chop; 中國宜興' (Yi Xing China). The lighter/larger of the two has a fairly loose fitting lid and no filter in the spout, the darker/smaller has a tighter lid and a filter in the spout. Both were found at a fleamarket

A larger "bamboo" Yi Xing. The pot and the lid seems to be diffrent qualities - though the lid does fit perfectly. If anybody could translate the writing and/or say anything abou the chop I would be very grateful. This pot is a fleamarket found aswell

Re: Show Off Your Chinese Teaware

Factory-1 Nian-Gao-Tu (cake clay) Shui Ping

This clay first appeared during 6~70's, is very delicately-processed Hongni (100-hole sieve) mixed with zisha. First invented to use for slip-casting, but FAILED (like other Yixing clays), then potters made with left-over clay in 70~early-80's.

First, it wasn't welcomed by collectors for its darker color, then many started to like for its killing-seasoning ability, now it became one of Factory-1 'legendary' clays.

I ordered via Taiwan (it's so hard to find early-period pot in Beijing!), now the review goes,

This clay, very dense and heavy, almost like Zhuni, I brewed Yancha in it, not bad but won't say equivalent to Zhuni, there is this milky aftertaste finishing, at least in my sense. Yet touching is incredible with tea towel when seasoning. This clay is one of few Factory-1 clays that are all-around player for brewing, and that might be why the Taiwanese like this clay so much as there are heavy followers of Oolong in Taiwan.

Re: Show Off Your Chinese Teaware

William, I'm not early-pot expert, but feel free to listen and oppose me.

http://veggiechinese.net/teadrunk/TN_2qing_yin5.jpg
I've never heard or seen, 'Ba Le' Qing Yin~
I've only known 6-cup size Hongni (first version, later many other version)
For Zini, I've known 4-cup (90ml) only.

http://veggiechinese.net/teadrunk/TN_3qing_yin1.jpg
This is 4-cup version I'm talking about, it has many imitations. The original one (early-80's), clay is awesome, some call it mine no.4 Di Cao Qing.

http://veggiechinese.net/teadrunk/TN_hex1.jpg
The potter is Xu Yu Fang, I like her style even though I don't own one, and she still makes pots. Clay might be Nian Gao Tu (the one just posted) or Xiao Hongni. 2 are very similar and delicate but nian gao tu is darker while xiao hongni is brighter orange tone. 70~early-80's maybe..

Re: Show Off Your Chinese Teaware

I found a pewter tea boat in a style I've been looking for for quite a while on Taobao. It took quite a while to actually obtain it. Unfortunately, when it arrived, the thing was more damaged than the photos had made obvious. There were quite a few dents and leaks, and I found out later that there had been some bad JB-Weld style repairs done to it also.

Here are some of the original auction photos:

http://veggiechinese.net/teadrunk/TN_pewter_tea_reservoir_before3.jpghttp://veggiechinese.net/teadrunk/TN_pewter_tea_reservoir_before4.jpg

On a recommendation from a friend, I tried taking it to a local silver shop (Vroman's Silver in Monrovia, California). The guy there was very helpful, though didn't realize at first that it needed to be water tight. They had to clean it in order to do the repairs, and they did quite a lot of work on truing the edges and repairing the bottom, as well as fixing all the leaks. The shop had the tea reservoir for a couple months, and I finally got it back recently. Will try to take some shots in better light if I get a chance.

Re: Show Off Your Chinese Teaware

Rather cool looking.  How much liquid (volume) can it comfortably hold?  The problem I always run into is the reservoirs always get filled too quickly and I have do to an awkward walk to a sink to empty it.

Re: Show Off Your Chinese Teaware

Hi, I'm new to the forum and new to teapot collecting as well. I recently acquired this pot on a trip to China, where I visited a factory while on a tour. I don't read a lot of Chinese, and was hoping someone could tell me what the paperwork that came with the pot says. I'm assuming it's the names of the two makers who worked on the pot. I was told that one was deceased, and I got a photo of myself with the other maker of the pot while I was at the factory.

Thanks for any help. I've been slowing reading the forum and learning a lot, and hope I can contribute more in the future.

Re: Show Off Your Chinese Teaware

Hi, I am new to zhuni and zisha collecting and really need as much help as possible please.

I am currently in Guangzhou China and one of my relative's friends has given me an old small pot that I really like. I am guessing it is zhuni by the sound of it. Youtube link HERE for the sound test

Can anyone confirm whether it is or any other clay? Whether it has any value? Since I got it as a gift if it has any value I'd like to give a similar value gift back to the person who gifted it to me. Unfortunately the previous owner was given it as well and he knows nothing about it since he was not into tea at all.

Here are the photos. Thanks for all your expertise and help on this.

Re: Show Off Your Chinese Teaware

Be careful with that pot!

I don't have an authoritative answer for you... but I can say that I have heard plenty of pots that I know are modern clay (i.e., modern zhuni) and not expensive which have a similar ringing sound.

Did the previous owner have it for a long time? What is the total capacity, and is there a "join line" inside?
