Here in my town it's a spring fair weekend and popular yardsale day. I always go around these looking for interesting teaware, even just cute 10 cent mugs. But finding this
was a surprise.
This was a place that had a few other interesting - and expensive - pottery pieces, but the sticker price on this was $3.
I've seen and lusted over Yixing ware before but don't...or didn't...own any. So is this Yixing? Did I score an awesome find or just another nice teapot?
Borrowing from the main Yixing thread questions, here's the ones I can answer:
- Size: Without measuring I'd put it at 6-8 oz. The pot fits neatly in my hand.
- Thickness: The walls are about as thick as three stacked pennies, don't know where that puts it on the thin/medium/thick scale.
I guess those are the only ones I know - I haven't gotten to making any tea in it yet.
