@Admar do you have more images of the inside lid? And the inside body where the handle is?

@Admar the style of this pot wants to be mid Qing, but somehow it feels a bit off... the lid has some unusual features. Not sure about this one. I could be wrong though.

Is the lid darker than the body or is that a false impression of the photos?

Yes, lid is tad darker. It gets wierder... the spout is blocked by some clay. They didn't clean it up before fireing. A full pour took 33 seconds. A bit of carefull drilling got it down to 23 seconds.

Clay in the spout is quite common with this kind of peasant low quality pots. Darker lid plus the overall look of the lid, raises some questions... it also seems to be a tiny bit too large.

Maybe lids got changed over time somewhere. The volume of the pot filled to the brim is 140ml. And for the spout.. at least it is usable now. The way it was dribbeling was not pleasant

Do you guys season your new Yixing teapots prior to first use and if so, how?

Good to hear.
I've never done that but I've seen people mention it, hence my question.

Ya people mention a whole lot of things, but better not to listen to them...

Just recently had to avert my eyes in disbelief when reading someone comment on one of the larger FB tea-groups saying: Duanni is cheaper as it is only lower strata clay... :? The level of mis- and dis-information takes dimensions that even trying to comment there would turn me into some kind of Sisyphus.

I think we've read the same post.... I rolled my eyes when I saw it... I really don't know where does all these misinformation coming from.

The available yixing materials I think, is much better now than it was in the past. But really I haven't came across such a statements anywhere... So where do people get all these nonsense then?
