Abracadaver! OFFER: Yixing and Taiwanese Teapots, Tea Pet

Postby Abracadaver! » May 13th, '13, 13:32

Hello, all. I'm trying to clear up some shelf space and find some of my seldom/never used teaware a home where they will get the use they deserve.

Please feel free to PM me with any questions, or to get a shipping estimate. I'm open to trades as well, so if you have anything you'd like to trade, please let me know.

Also, please note, the color is *slightly* more yellow in these photos than in real life.
Thanks for looking!

1: 130ml Hong Ni Teapot, Modern, 10 hole filter.
Price: sold

I used this teapot lightly with roasted TGY. Tight lid fit, good pour, and an interesting texture.

2: 100ml Duan Ni Bamboo Teapot, Modern, 7 hole filter.
Price: $50 plus shipping.

Normally, I don't go for the more stylized-type teapots, but there was something really appealing about the half-moon shape with the bamboo details. Water pours like a canon from the spout. Used with ripe puerh.

3: 150ml Barrel-shaped Teapot, Modern, single hole filter w/ metal filter.
Price: $35 plus shipping.

I'm not sure what the clay is on this one (something with a lot of sand). Apparently, the label in Chinese says what clay it is, but I never got it translated. Nice thick walls and a good feel in the hand. It's modern, but it has the feel of something older. Used lightly with raw ouerh.

Please note: There are two surface cracks where the "knob" meets the lid (see photos). I believe that these are either from when the teapot was drying or from firing (thoughts from the potters on the board?). At any rate, they appear to be just cosmetic, as the knob is completely solid and sound and won't be coming apart.

4: 220ml XiShi Teapot, 7 hole filter
Price: sold

This is a funny one. It's definitely a mass-produced teapot, but of much better quality than most I've seen. The clay has a nice feel, the pour is smooth and the lid fit tight. I picked this one up as a gift for a friend who was wanting to try out GongFu-style tea, but who ended up getting a much nicer pot in the mean time. It's a great inexpensive starter pot if you don't mind the volume. It's been cleaned, boiled and prepped, but is otherwise unused.

5: 120ml Purion Teapot from Lin's Ceramic Studio Taiwan, single hole filter with metal filter.
Price: sold

I hate to get rid of this one, but I just don't use it often enough. Purion seems to have a sweetening effect on the water, and this particular pot pairs really well with raw puerh. It has the nicest metal filter I've ever seen on the interior.

6: 50ml Taiwanese XiShi Teapot, ball filter.
Price: sold

This is another strange one. The clay looks very sandy, but is incredibly smooth and thin. High fired, perfect lid fit, and a great pour. The curlicue on the handle makes it very easy to hold and pour. Not sure about the details of it's manufacture, other than that it's made from Taiwanese clay and is wheel-thrown.

7: Wealth Toad Tea Pet
Price: sold

This muppet-like tea pet is made by one of Li Qiang's apprentices. It is a solid, heavy piece of clay, and clicks and blows bubbles when hot water is poured over it.

That's it! If you've made it this far, thanks again for looking!

Just two pots and the tea pet left. I'd love to find them a home, so I've cut the prices one last time. Thanks for looking!
