great to see you here again! been a long whilesteanze wrote:Hi Bok,
Nice pot, that size is so handy for yancha. There are 6 character seals until the early-mid '60s, then there's a switch to zhongguo yixing (4 character) seals in the late 60s, but 6 character seals come back in the late '70s onwards. Your pot looks like an end '70s to early '80s shuiping.
indeed there was a switch in and out of the 6 character seals, those of the 60s were prim and proper script, those from end 70s onwards are "乱字章" or messy/cursive script, it is a stark contrast~
