The first pot looks slip-cast, the clay was very fluid before firing.

Second pot is nice :) good zini

Others might have a different view, but I think the mark on your top pot reads 中國泉州 China Quanzhou.

Quanzhou is a port city in Fujian province with a storied trading history and a strong tea culture.

I would put money on the second pot being F1. First one looks like a modern knockoff that is coated with something. I have a pot like that!
