Looks like 2 characters, thai symbols? meng chen? gong jue? yi gong? All wild guesses....

The_economist, that pot is superb.
I have one squarish as well,60ml Zini that I use with aged Oolongs.
I think mine is from the 80's factory 1, but with all the fakes around I'm really not sure.
Can you tell me if the clay looks like yours?

Thanks all!

Debunix, that was precisely what attracted me to it. It has a dominating presence (霸气).

Achyle, the clay looks different to me, but I'm not an expert.

This is an old company. I wonder if it is an homage to them or one produced for the company? Lovely pot.

Zhou Zhihua is a Craftsman listed in Billy Mood's Factory 1 list. Wonder what the Fuji reference is.

I don't think it's Factory's stuff, but don't take too seriously on them, they were just commercial distributed pots :D
