Carving seems uncharacteristic of F1 but looks 80’s so maybe F2 or possibly private factory from 80-90’s.
Thanks a lot.

You may be right. As far as I know, my grandfather did make a trip to Asia in late 70 or early 80. He passed away in late 80s.

I feel like tea tastes much better with a good teapot and cup, that looks beautiful and vintage at the same time.

dont wanna spend too much time, just tell you what I know

the whole thing is from right to left
ABCD.EF.GHI (there are also '.' on the pot)
JK
L

AB is 庚寅 it is the year name in Chinese calendar, (B is definitely not 黃)
since Chinese years is 60 years per cycle, therefore
the year can be 1890 1950 2010 2070 2130 1891 1951 2011

CD is 之年 means 'the year of'

EF is 六月, 六=6 ,月 =month, means June of Chinese Lunar year
GHI lazy to find but 'I' is 告 (means told, shown, marked..)
JK is the name, lazy to find
L is the surname 劉

so, at least you can know the year :)
