I like the history of pieces like this, and like a bit of ancient history on my tea table.

I didn't look at the large images. In the small images i saw a kiln chip. I think that at times a small chip or so in those plates can add to the charm of the piece. It's not a piece for the showcase - it's something that has been used, and is to use more.
I think as well that old stuff on the tea table adds enormously to the atmosphere.

By the way thanks you you and this video and post I'm now obsessed with getting this style of teaboat. My budget cannot handle any new information about beautiful teawares that are out there! Thanks a lot! :x

:wink:
Lol you and me both
