I'll ask this question again, since it didn't get a lot of attention in the Yixing Thread.
What factors can affect the price of a yixing pot? I understand it is usually difficult to compare two different pots with so many different variables, so for the purposes of discussion, consider "all other things being equal".
How much does the size of the pot affect pricing? I've seen some xiao pin pots sell for as much as larger pots, even though there is less quantity of clay used for a xiao pin.
How about whether a pot is fully handmade or only half-handmade? I would imagine fully handmade would increase the value, but is this "always" the case all other things being equal?
What about age of clay? I've read some state that aged, older clay is typically higher quality than newer clay, so I would assume pots made of older clay should be more expensive as well.
These are just a few of the things off the top of my head ... thanks for the discussion.
