Though the wrinkles can be faked, sometimes at least somewhat convincingly.
Ya, but 'faked' wrinkles are rather easily to be noticed.
Normally they don't draw wrinkles on bottom, lid, inside of body, button etc..but real Zhuni pots will have wrinkles even on bottom or spout.
Or there is a way to find joint lines, those lines are due to high shrinkage of Zhuni. Zhuni pots have joint lines on spout, inside of lid, in the back of body etc..just any spot that two different pieces are joined.
If not, there is always 'ping' test..
