I visited an old village last weekend and did some shopping. I picked up some antique teapots, tea cups, and tea trays. I thought I'd share. I haven't cleaned them yet, so they'll look a lot nicer when I do. They date mostly from the Qing Dynasty with some from the Republican Period.

Thanks Laura and Petr, it is made by artist Hozan Tanii for Hibiki-an:
http://www.hibiki-an.com/product_info.p ... cts_id/583

The green glaze is called beedoro, the white glaze is call namako.

So although this looks like a glass pool, I think it is a glazing technique, if I am reading the description correctly. It is definitely more beautiful than my pictures can convey. I love the matte glaze and the smooth cool feel.

I will clean them, but I will leave them rustic looking. They're from a Qing Dynasty Tea Shop and they were beaten quite a bit, but I think that adds to their charm. I could restore them to new condition, but I feel, what's the point. If I want new appearing ones, I could buy them. I buy antiques for the history of the piece.
