Welcome to a TeaChat first of maybe more ... a Moderated Silent Auction. Tingjunkie requested permission for a silent auction on this item.
Tingjunkie wrote:Hello fellow TeaChatters! I have an interesting pot that I am putting up for sale. I am a bit reluctant to let her go, but room must be made and my growing Yixing collection must be thinned out! Because of the pot's age, and condition, I honestly didn't know what price would be fair to ask for it, so instead, Chip has agreed to let me put it up for a silent auction here. Rather than resorting to eBay, I'd prefer to see this piece of teaware history remain withing the TeaChat community.
