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.

If you have the F1 catalogues it is in there.
Sort of off topic (sorry to hijack) but where can one find said catalogues ?

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

Re: Hand made silver pots?

That sounds really cool! I'm not a fan of the gaudy decorations on most of the silver teapots that I've seen. I don't know anything about making them though; do you have any experience with metal casting? Most of the readily available silver pots are pretty tacky. Not should I would even pay scrap ...

Re: Hand made silver pots?

I remember seeing someone in Taiwan having a fb page and doing just that, need to look it up. Has become quite the trend in Taiwan, hammered little silver ware, mostly spoons, cups etc. I think that is how one would create those, by hammering. Japan would be the other place I’d look for information...

idk about hammering out a shuiping lol i think this is what you'd do: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost-wax_casting I originally thought of casting a replacement lid for one of my pots but than came across some videos of raising hollow vessels. It seems like a better option. It would be pretty coo...

Hand made silver pots?

I’ve been considering getting into making metal teapots with the hopes of eventually making some in 99% silver in shui ping/bale ROC/f1 styles.

Anyone know much about making silver pots? Or have links to relevant info for them?
