The matter of "tuition fee" teapots

by williammimi70 » Apr 27th 17 10:07 am

Knowing nothing about yixing( as I only started collecting recently)
Being rather enthusiastic I have amassed quite a few of these tuition fee pots
I am posting these up so that newbies like myself can avoid making the same mistakes
First pot
Small egg size
Single hole

Even though those cheaper pots don't seem to have much of a collectors value they actually might perform pretty decently as a brewing vessel - you'll never know until you try. Some of my cheaper pots give other pots that have cost me more than 15 times as much a serious run for their money in that regard and that's pretty much all I care for and what I bought them for in the first place - YMMV.

Thank you for your kind encouragement. On my collector'spoint of view , I want to collect Yinxing teapots that were made from real yixing clay , on that perspective collecting Republic period teapots would seem to be a sensible thing to do . However I like to collect some Chinese taste teapots as well
