I didn't realize that Rihi pearskin was so tiny! Love the little "family." :D

Very nice Kyusu Lecorbus and Victoria. Thank you both for sharing.

Bizen Yohen Kyusu revisited. A bit clearer this time.

I've probably posted this before elsewhere, but it is my only Kyusu these days and seems like fair game.

Pot is by Shimizu Genji and I couldn't be more pleased. I've been infected with a Hokujo bug ever since Alex was here.

I'm hoping someone around here might be able to give me a little info about this kyusu. I found it at a thrift shop (for $0.75!). I don't think it's particularly old, but it had been well used--very heavy tea staining on the interior and a lot of dried leaf clogging the filter. I've cleaned it up a bit, but haven't come to any conclusions. The workmanship is a bit rough--the red surface seems almost painted on and a bit crude and there are fingerprints in the surface of the pot, but the pour is smooth and the workmanship seems pretty solid.
Any ideas?

Looks like a Tokoname kyusu to me. And, a very handy size. I'll give you a dollar for it! :D Good find. Strange that a seller would leave old leaves in the pot. I've seen that here in Thailand a few times but I suspect the seller was trying to make a new pot seem old. Clean it, boil it, and, enjoy it.

I see gyokko, isn't it awesome?! I love it when an inexpensive pot is so functional and such good quality. :)
