MarshalN: OFFER Teawares for sale

Postby MarshalN » Apr 17th, '09, 14:41

I've posted this entry at my blog as well, but as I am moving soon in a few months, I'm looking to reduce some of my teaware holdings. I am hoping that this will put some of these items to better use than sitting on my shelves collecting dust, here are some teaware that I've dug up so far that I am hoping will find a better home somewhere else.

Image

5 cups
1 silver plated kyusu
1 tea caddy
1 tetsubin
1 teapot + yuzamashi
5 chataku (one set)

Most of these I've used at one time or another, some rather extensively. They are no longer items that I use for my tea drinking, however, and will probably be more useful to some others. I also have some other cups that I am thinking of parting ways with. If you're so inclined, shoot me an email too.

Please PM me for details.

May I ask why you do not get round to using your pewter (Royal Selangor ? Four Seasons ?) Tea Caddy?

I have always intended when financially more secure to acquire a few Malaysian Pewter Tea Caddies. Either Royal Selangor or the 2nd or 3rd best malaysian pewter manufacturers which I have handled and find incredibly impressive.

The short answer is because I prefer these instead

The one I'm selling is a cheaper Chinese one. It's still decently made and all, but I don't like the style very much -- too busy.

Are you suggesting this is a Chinese replica?

"This" meaning the one I am selling? Or some other one?

I believe the one I am selling is a Chinese made one, yes. There's a reason it's cheaper than $150 :)

Concerning the tetsubin, is it porcelain lined or unlined? Its capacity? How much?
