Re: For Shui Ping lovers with small pockets...

Nice enough pots but to be honest I completely agree with BOK.

Pots like these are still gonna be readily available in 5 years with minimal price increases.

Re: FB groups for Yixing?

Bok I think the main objective would be for people outside of Asia to share the pots they are collecting along with general zisha discussions about vintage, antique, fully handmade and artistic pots. There is little need for F1 authentication. FB group already has this covered. No discussion about ...

FB groups for Yixing?

I’ve been pondering the idea of starting a FB group for western zisha collectors. I’m not sure there is a huge demand for one but I thought it might be fun to see what other US/EU people are collecting.

Anybody know of any FB groups started by western yixing collectors?

Re: Ageing Zhuni Clay

Brent D yes it is difficult from far away and with so little available information in English. One solution - move over here, once you can molest and fondle the real thing, it gets a lot easier, not to forget to have good and trustworthy friends! :mrgreen: You’re right to focus on the leaf, yet I t...

If you have a bit of time and can handle a trip out to Brooklyn, the Orchid Tea House is worthy of your attention.
Best shop in NYC for serious yixing. Qing-modern teaware. Good 90’s loose puerh and many other oddities that you won’t kind anyware else in nyc. 80’s bug poop tea

@Isarite

F1 stickers are orange or yellow orange when faded. The R on yours is also too big so it’s definitely not a legit sticker. Likely modern pot.

Re: Hand made silver pots?

I've been toying with the same idea, but i don't think i'll ever make one. I'd start with copper to learn how to form it by hammering. I suppose that a lot of the technique could be transferred to silver. But shui-ping wont be easy. Anyway if you manage to make a nice pot in copper, you can always ...

Nice plum blossom pot. Looks like it might be 80’s F1.

A close relative of that design.

I can't even believe how much you are asking for them... :o
Pricy compared to standard shuiping but all are cheaper than this pot from late 80’s. Serious sticker shock! $558 usd
