OFFER: F1 or F2 SP, late 70s/early 80s, 55/60 ml.

by William » Oct 14th 16 10:32 am

Hello people! :D

I would like to sell this teapot, F1 or F2 production, made between the late 70s and the early 80s.
I bought three of these teapots last year, and started using them .. but now I am realizing that having 3 same teapots is unnecessary, so I chose randomly one to be offered here for sale.

This clay is AMAZING with teas that need just a touch of porosity, since the firing level is really good.
I personally use these teapots with sheng (especially aged) and shu puerh, roasted oolong (especially Yancha and HF TGY), liu bao and even red teas.

The volume is particularly suggested for teas generally expensive (e.g. good quality Yancha or aged puerh).

The teapot is in perfect conditions.

The asking price is 160 € EMS included (any destination).

I like the pots but with this kind of seal, is it really an F1 pot?

i believe that Factory 2 didn't start until 1984.

Is the seal really important? :D

Btw 1983/1984 is still considered part of the transitional era 77/78 - 83/84, after this period all the good natural clays run out and factory started to use more dubious clays, especially with regards to color and texture.

If it is an F1, yes. It probably rules out your pot being an F1.
As far as F2, I really couldn't say, but part of the Factory lineage are the seals. So, yes, they matter.

As I said I like the pot, but am skeptical it is a factory pot.

Thank you for expressing your opinion, TO! :D

In my opinion, given the craftsmanship on this particular teapot and the quality of the clay used, I have no doubt it to be a factory teapot. I either indicated F1 or F2 because I simply don't know which one made this teapot.
