That's a really sweet pot! Not looking much like a tiger to me though.
And what is that on the handle? I'd like it better without that. Still a sweet pot!

These are the other 2 special edition teapots that the shop has too, I decided to choose the tiger cause this is Tiger year (the year I started having tea as hobby) and it looked cute to me.

Based on 虎形壶钮和龙口形壶把 and google translation/guessing, i think it says:-

Top handle = Tiger
Back handle = Dragon mouth

Cool pots! I like the ones from your latest post more, but the first one is interesting too.

Seems like Tiger and Dragon together have Ying Yang feng shui:-

Here is another version of the Ox. Slighter bigger with a hole to put the strainers

Image

This is also available at the shop. Tortoise. Quite big size. Looks more like dinosaur than tortoise.

Edit: Oh my, seem like there is a Ox teapot out there...

At the Ru Ware shop, they have this limited with serial number Tea set. The serial number is crafted on the teapot, 2 cups and a certificate board with the same serial number.

Photos not mine...

The pet is cute! He's a happy Ox wrapped in a blanket. Does he spray water from that hole? On the other hand, a strainer holder would be nice too. A combo, so less clutter. The pot is too much for me. And the turtle looks like he ran into a wall. :lol:

The handle on the last set ruined it for me. My eyes got glassy as I surveyed the cups, then the lovely pot, but then ... Is that a throwing star? Sorry, not digging it.
