I have a 75ml that looks like it could be from the same era. Not surprisingly, it works really well for Chao Zhou Kung Fu tea.

Chaozhou is wheel-thrown, Yixing is hand-tapped,

also Chaozhou clay is a 'clay' but Yixing clay is sort of ores that later grinds into a clay. With some eye training, it's rather simple :D

The mark is 聲晉德圃 Shengjin Depu.

There's a discussion here of another pot with this mark, in Chinese:

Google will probably translate for you better than I.

That pot also has a mark 昌記 Chang Ji on the handle. Your photos don't show whether there's such a mark on yours.

A question for you:

What does the "Chao Zhou" mean ?

Chao Zhou is as you said the region where they come from, style wise they look almost the same as Yixing, the difference being that Chao Zhou is weel-thrown pottery as opposed to the built method from Yixing. Clay is different too, more porous if I understand correctly.

Chaozhou is also where the gong fu brewing method originates.
